"The article, 'The Telltale Scribes of Timbuktu,' reveals the legendary African city Timbuktu and what it has become today. The story focuses on the newly discovered manuscripts and their archive of African knowledge, but also comments on Timbuktu as a great trading city of yore. It focuses on issues of insecurity in the Sahara with Al-Quaeda in the Magreg and comments on the Islamic religious influence that is the bedrock of the city."
