Mali’s Islamist rebels smashed the entrance of a 15th century Timbuktu mosque on Monday, escalating a campaign of destruction of the city’s cultural treasures despite threats of prosecution for war crimes.

Some residents sobbed as the Islamist militants broke down the ’sacred door‘ of one of the northern Malian city’s three ancient mosques after they wrecked seven tombs of Muslim saints over the weekend.

Exclusive video footage obtained by AFP shows turbaned men chanting ‚Allahu Akbar‘ (God is great) while smashing a mausoleum with pick-axes in a cloud of dust, the mud-brick tomb showing gaping holes in the side with rubble piling up alongside it.
