  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Mali leaders detained: what impact on the fight against jihadist groups in the region?” – below is their description.

    Malian officers upset with a government reshuffle have detained the president and Prime Minister at an army camp outside the capital, triggering broad international condemnation and demands for their immediate release. President Bah Ndaw and Prime Minister Moctar Ouane lead an interim government that was installed under the threat of regional sanctions following a putsch in August, and the detentions on Monday raised fears of a second coup. France 24’s Wassim Nasr gives his analysis.
