UN Security Council condemns coup in Mali

The UN Security Council is condemning the "forcible takeover" of Mali by mutinous soldiers.



United Nations: The UN Security Council is
condemning the "forcible takeover" of Mali by mutinous
soldiers.

The statement read today at the opening of a Security
Council session on peacekeeping operations calls on the rebels
to cease all violence and return to their barracks.

The council wants the west African country to be able to
go ahead with previously scheduled elections this spring.

The council says the upheaval in Mali is compounding
problems in the region caused by drought, food shortages and
the influx of workers and fighters leaving Libya after the
overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi last year.
