President Ibrahim Keita of Mali
The European Union (EU) has said the removal of Mali’s President Ibrahim Keita by soldiers is disturbing.
Recall that yesterday, (Tuesday) some soldiers arrested him, the prime minister and other top government officials before forcing them to resign.
On Wednesday, Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton told Europe 1 that some journalists reporting to the EU have not been in touch.
He said: “It (the situation in Mali) is very disturbing. We haven’t heard from a certain number of journalists. There are serious reasons to be concerned about what is happening.”
Breton, however, disclosed that Europe will “push for a democratic and constitutional process” in the West African nation.
The mutineers say Keita was ousted due to the tension and violence in Mali.
They have announced their next line of action.
