The United Nations Team Gains Access to Deposed President Mali

The United Nations has visited Malian officials detained by the military, including deposed President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.

 

UN mission Minusma announced that a team had been given access to an army base near the capital Bamako.

Mutinous soldiers arrested Keita on Tuesday. They later announced that some transitional council would run the country until new elections can be held.

There is a lot of criticism of the coup plotters from abroad. The Economic Community of West African States made it clear that it was behind the deposed Keita.

After his arrest, the military took the president to Kati army base, where the UN team was allowed to visit him. Minusma did not say what Keita’s condition is.

A member of the junta now running the country said the military had released at least two other top officials. It would be a minister and Keita’s private secretary.
