Mali coup sees protesters take over presidential villa
Mali coup sees protesters take over presidential villa in Mali as a video of young protesters have surfaced of them playing around the Presidential Villa in Mali
This happens after President Ibrahim Boubakar Keïta was arrested by mutinying soldiers, has surfaced on the internet.
Before the President of Mali’s arrest yesterday by the soldiers, there was gunfire inside a key military base, some 15km (nine miles) from the capital, Bamako.
In the centre of Mali, Bamako, young men looted a government-owned building and set the building on fire.
The mutiny has been condemned by regional group ECOWAS and the former colonial power and masters of the country, France.
Recall that the president, Mr Keita won a second term in elections in 2018, but there is widespread anger over corruption, the mismanagement of the economy and the worsening security situation with communal violence on the increase.
Although it is not yet clear how many soldiers have taken part in the mutiny, some reports in the country say it was fuelled by a pay dispute in Mali
