AU suspends Mali over coup

Assimi Goita

The African Union has suspended Mali’s membership in response to last week’s military coup, just a few days after a similar suspension from ECOWAS.

The AU called for “an unimpeded, transparent and swift return to the civilian-led transition” amid fears that the coup will jeopardize a presidential election in February.

Former vice president Assimi Goita, a colonel who led the August coup last year and last week’s revolt, was declared president on Friday.
