FILE - This undated file photo provided by French nuclear manufacturer Areva shows part of the uranium mine of Arlit, in northern Niger. In an Oct. 3, 2012 internal al-Qaida letter found by the AP, international terrorist Moktar Belmoktar is excoriated for his unwillingness to follow orders and critiqued for his failure to carry out any large attack. His ego bruised, he quit and formed his own group to compete directly with his former employer. Within months, he he claimed responsibility for two attacks, in Algeria and Niger, so large that they rivaled the biggest operations undertaken by al-Qaida's wing on the continent. Simultaneous May 23 attacks in northern Niger, on a military base in Agadez and a French uranium mine in Arlit, killed 35.(AP Photo/AREVA/HO) NO SALES - MANDATORY CREDIT: AREVA
