(Washington Times) — Extremists are using madrassas in Northern Mali to indoctrinate young people and recruit child soldiers. The Islamic radicals attacked Gao several times this week, their  second assault on the strategic city since they retreated in the face of French and Malian military, and their young recruits appear to be  part of the strategy of MUJAO, or Movement  for Oneness and Jihad in  West Africa.
