A girl writes on the blackboard during a class in the Bahadon Second Cycle School in Timbuktu, a city in northern Mali which was seized by Islamist fighters in 2012 and then liberated by French and Malian soldiers in early 2013. The jihadis first banned all schools, then under pressure from the community, allowed them to open but with separate classes for boys and girls.
