Al-Qaida The Multinational-21

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, is a signed advance to the terror group's fighters. It says: "In the name of Allah, the most Clement, I gave Omar Mohamed Abou Khalid, the emir of Tashara Zarho, 460,000 fcfa ($920) for his monthly expenses from September 21, 2012 to October 21, 2012 for 34 soldiers." The document, signed by the fighter, is one of more than 100 receipts and invoices that show an organization intent on documenting even the most minor expenses. (AP Photo)
