Islamists who seized control of part of Mali are amassing money from ransoms and drug trafficking while imposing Sharia law, says a senior UN official.

They are also buying child soldiers, paying families $600 (£375) per child, Ivan Simonovic said after a fact-finding visit to the country.

More women were being forced into marriage - with a wife costing less than $1,000 - and some were then being resold in "a smokescreen for enforced prostitution", added Mr Simonovic.

So far, he said, there had been three public executions, eight amputations and two floggings.

Nothing like purchasing and training a 13 year old starving savage and teaching how to shoot 1st, and then move em up to heavy caliber.
