Malian refugees Amiri Ag Abdoulaye and Mohammed Ould Najim met in a Burkina Faso refugee camp after spending much of their youth fleeing Islamist violence and struggling with trauma — until they found dance.  The young men joined a program founded by an internationally acclaimed Burkinabè dancer that trains marginalized youth as a tool for reconciliation and healing. Clair MacDougall has this report from Ouagadougou.
