    Members of the group Ansar Dine have destroyed the mausoleums of Sufi saints in Timbuktu for a second day.

    Sunday's destruction, utilising pick axes and guns, comes after a statement by the International Criminal Court (ICC), calling the on-going campaign of destruction of ancient Islamic shrines in northern Mali "a war crime".
