BREAKING: Military arrest Mali’s president, prime minister and defence minister. Reports of a coup de etat! Security Alert U.S. Embassy, Bamako!

Sharing is Caring!

President Bah Ndaw, Prime Minister Moctar Ouane and defence minister Souleymane Doucoure were all taken to a military base in Kati outside the capital Bamako.

The arrests occurred after the announcement of a change in government in which two members of a military junta that seized power in August were replaced.

Malian Transitional Prime Minister Moctar Ouane said he was taken forcibly by soldiers to the president’s home on Monday, after the appointment of a new government that appears to have upset the colonels who were responsible for the 2020 coup.

Event: The U.S. Embassy has received reports of increased military activity in Bamako. U.S. citizens are encouraged to avoid non-essential travel inside the city at this time, and monitor local media for updates.
