Mali. A great place to display ones Caucasian nature.
From the information I have, their throats were cut. We dont know for sure who took them, but the reports we are hearing indicate that they were Islamists, said Lassana Camara, the deputy prefect of Tinessako.

Senoufo people in the south, Tuareg & Moors in the NW.
Obviously, things in some areas have changed since then.
