Siriki Diabate left his four daughters, parents and three siblings behind in 2005 when he was forced to flee his native Ivory Coast after suffering a terrific beating by thugs who left him for dead. He was working for a local newspaper at the time, writing stories exposing the national government's practice of persecuting the Malinki tribal people in the country's northern region, he said. “I am a Malinki,” said Diabate, who was 32 at the time he was beaten. The men who beat him were unofficial paramilitary goons hired by the government to harass Malinki activists, Diabate said in a recent interview.
