Aicha, 28, waits with her four-year-old son to take a boat from the port in Mopti, Mali to Timbuktu on Feb. 10. She left her home in Timbuktu in April 2012 when rebel groups took control of the city. She stayed at her cousin’s home in the capital, Bamako. She heard the situation in Timbuktu is improving, so she decided to return.
