MALI: Big Brother now spying on women in their own homes

Women can be arrested anywhere if they're not wearing a Muslim Burka
From MiddleEastonline, "In northern Mali: Women without veil detained":

New fighting and a crackdown on women not wearing veils by Islamist militants on Friday marred peace moves by two rival groups in Mali’s desert north despite pledges they were ready for peace talks with Bamako.

In Islamist-controlled Timbuktu, a local official said dozens of women were arrested on Thursday by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) for not wearing veils.
“The Islamists were going into homes to arrest unveiled women,” he said.
The women were being “imprisoned” at a disused bank, a medical source added, as AQIM militants vowed to continue the crackdown in the city which they control with Islamist group Ansar Dine, saying “that nothing can prevent them from doing so”. (Emphasis added.)
Editor's comment - Help me out here. Why is it again, we're not supposed to use the term "Islamo-Fascism"? (H/t Weasel Z.)
