Timbuktu Attractions - Peace Accord Memorial

The Memorial celebrating the 1992 Peace Accord of the Konare government ..
ending decades of Tuareg rebellion and fighting .. is on the outskirts of the city, close to where the camel caravans still depart on their long journeys across the desert.

The close-up reveals a Tuareg with his sword and a lady, both in traditional clothing.

The centrepiece is composed of decommissioned guns from previous conflicts between the Tuaregs and various Malian governments.
