Mali shifts music festival

I suppose that - in context - the overbearing presence of mobile phone companies and the cancellation of the trains heading towards the county might be minor quibbles when it comes to music festivals. Organisers of Festival Au Desert have had to shift the venue closer to Timbuktu to make it safer from terrorists.

Not safe enough for the French, though, who've advised their nationals not to attend. Balancing out the risk, though, is that U2 aren't playing. You've got like those odds, right?
