BREAKING: Possible Coup Underway In Mali, As Soldiers Arrests Senior Military Officers

Coastal News

MALI____ A possible coup is underway in Mali.

This followed nearly three months of demonstrations calling for President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita’s resignation.

Soldiers in Kati town are arresting senior military officers.

Tanks and military vehicles are moving round the streets of Kati, 15 kilometers from the capital, Bamako.

Government workers in the nearby capital of Bamako are evacuating.

“Arrests are being made of officials. It’s total confusion,” an officer at Mali’s Ministry of Internal Security, told journalists.

The development comes amid the intervention by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

The body met late July but it appeared that the leaders did not achieve a sound commitment from warring parties.

It was briefed by ECOWAS Special Envoy, former President Goodluck Jonathan, opposition leader, Imam Mahmoud Dicko, representatives of opposition alliance, M5-RFP and civil society organisations.

President Keita also gave a brief on the socio-political situation and the disagreements that spiralled into violence.

The United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), African Union (AU) had condemned his government’s use of lethal force on protesters.
