Mali Unrest Continues

| No Comments

Amadou Sanogo, the leader of the March 21 coup in Mali, has vowed to restore the rule of Mali's 1992 constitution amid fears of sanctions according to the BBC.
Ecowas, a West African trading bloc, issued a deadline for Malian troops to return to their barracks says Reuters. While that has been agreed to in principle, no timeline has emerged from coup leadership.
Sanctions from Ecowas could include a shutdown of Mali's borders, freezing of assets and the withholding of credit.
The army initially took to the streets over the manner in which ousted president, Amadou Tourmani Toure, was handling the Tuareg rebels in the north of the country.
Sunday saw more swaths of northern Mali overtaken by the Tuareg rebels, as they seized Timbuktu, the third of three regional hubs to fall in the same number of days.
