Military Coup in Mali: Demands, Condemnation and Northern Rebels
On Thursday, 22 March, 2012, soldiers who called themselves the Committee for the Re-establishment of Democracy and the Restoration of the State (CNRDR), announced that they had seized power of Mali following a coup.
In a televised statement, the soldiers cited dissatisfaction with the government's failure to end a rebellion in the north of the country, that had been going on for two months, as the reason behind the coup, but promised to return power after the elections.
