Mali president and PM arrested by mutinying soldiers in apparent coup attempt-watch video.

Mutinying soldiers in Mali have detained President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta and Prime Minister Boubou Cissé, after taking control of a key military camp near the capital Bamako.

The apparent coup attempt comes after weeks of protests calling for President Keïta’s resignation as the country’s economic and security conditions worsen.

Tuesday’s mutiny and arrests have sparked international condemnation.

“We can tell you that the president and the prime minister are under our control,” the leader, who requested anonymity said…

Another military official, who also declined to be named, said the president and prime minister were in an armored vehicle en route to Kati.
