Meanwhile, the former junta leader Col Assimi Goïta has declared himself the country’s transitional president.

He made the announcement after stripping interim President Bah Ndaw and PM Moctar Ouane of their powers.

The two ousted leaders were freed from military detention, where they had been held since Monday in what was seen as Mali’s second coup in nine months.

The situation in Mali today is said to be tense but calm.
