Didn’t Pakistan’s nuclear scientist Qadeer Khan have a hotel in Mali?

Ha, found the reference. Yes he did... :

Pakistani dissidents for their part have told how  the real reason for Khan's visit Timbuktu was to prospect for uranium. Landlocked Mali lies adjacent to uranium-rich Niger, from where the French government obtains all the uranium it needs for its nuclear programme, and Mali also has untapped resources of the same mineral. The [Pakistani] dissidents  say Khan's subsequent purchase of the newly named Hendrina Khan  Hotel was just a cover to his real interest in the precious uranium needed for nuclear bombs. ---------------- "Khan's visit to Timbuktu was to prospect for uranium - dissident," London |By Shyam Bhatia, Correspondent | 19-02-2004 Gulf News, Feb 19, 2004 http://article.wn.com/link/WNAT039982C35252AFDAE2D6E88A1A1896F5?source=templategenerator&template=nigerpost/mainsearch.txt
