24-year-old Salaka Djicke reflects on the horror she endured during 10 months of Islamist rule in her hometown of Timbuktu, Mali, Wednesday Feb. 6, 2013.

Her body still bears the scars of the Shariah punishment she endured, after she was caught on Dec. 31, just two weeks before French forces liberated Timbuktu. (AP Photo/Rukmini Callimachi)
