This map shows the location of cultural heritage sites in the city of Timbuktu. Some of these sites are reported to be recently damaged by members of the Ansar Dine militia (see photo below, courtesy Getty and BBC). UNOSAT is collaborating with the University of Cape Town (Zamani Project-www.zamani-project.org) and the Saharan Archeological Research Association (www.saharanresearch.org) to assess potential damage to heritage sites.

Please send further ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.
