This morning I got the news of the Malian president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and his prime minister being arrested by the Malian soldiers.
According to the information I got from Aljazeera website, it read that there was something close to being a coup in Mali.
“Maliian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita announced around midnight on Tuesday that he is resigning from his post saying that he does not wish blood to be shed following a military mutiny that plunged the country into a political crisis”.
Still according to the reputable news site, the president in his own words said
“Today, certain parts of the military have decided that intervention was necessary. Do I really have a choice? Because I do not wish blood to be shed,” Keita said in a brief statement broadcast on national television.
Keita said that he has decided “to give up my duty from now on.”
