Mali: a country divided

Latest update : 15/06/2012

Mali is a country in turmoil. A military coup d'état on March 22, 2012 removed President Amadou Toumani Touré from power, and in the ensuing chaos rebels in the north, dominated by Tuareg tribesmen, took control of the country's three main northern cities. The West African country has been effectively divided in two.
