The decline of human rights in northern Mali

I don't share much of my fellow Americans' hysteria over Islam or Sharia or even Islamic political movements. But, the entity in northern Mali has interpreted Sharia in a very strict and puritanical manner that I find quite barbaric. Most recently, the Islamists running northern Mali had a fifteen year old girl in Timbuktu flogged with 60 lashes for the "crime" of talking to men on the street.
