Mali soldiers threaten to force out coup mediators
BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — Soldiers in Mali disrupted a meeting between West African mediators and Mali's junta because they say they do not agree with the group's decisions.
The soldiers on Saturday threatened to make the mediators leave.
The junta has said they are unhappy with regional bloc ECOWAS' recent decisions over Mali's recent coup. The junta said they wanted no foreign forces in Mali, whereas West African leaders decided to send in troops.
Some soldiers cocked their guns and said even if coup leader Capt. Amadou Sanogo agreed with mediators, they did not. The soldiers only backed down after Sanogo came out and ordered them to disperse.
Mutinous soldiers overthrew the democratically elected president last month. The junta has since handed over power to an interim civilian government.
