    Hamaha, when reached by cellphone Thursday evening, said he was feeling sick, and he asked to be called back the next day. He didn’t disclose his location.

    It was unclear what Hamaha was suffering from, but there was no reason to suspect that it was especially serious. Intravenous drip treatment is common in Mali, and it’s frequently used to treat malaria. Malaria is rampant across much of Africa, and although it’s often fatal for infants, adults treat it as Americans do the common cold or the flu.

    The case emphasizes, though, how openly traceable one of the top Islamist militants in Mali continues to be, even as he threatens the United States and Europe and vows a campaign to bring ultra-conservative Islamic shariah law to all of Mali and beyond.
