Al-Qaida The Multinational-18

ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, DEC. 30, 2013 AND THEREAFTER - This document retrieved from a building occupied by al-Qaida's North African branch in Timbuktu, Mali, outlines the budget for an Islamic Tribunal, which handed down sentences, including public amputations for theft. Included within this budget are the expenses for members of the tribunal, their guardians and cooks, support staff, transportation and telecommunications. It is one of more than 100 receipts and invoices that show an organization intent on documenting even the most minor expenses. (AP Photo)
