FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Mali: President and Prime Minister reportedly held by soldiers” – 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.
