West Africa's G5 Sahel force calls for release of Mali president

DAKAR (Reuters) - The West African regional G5 Sahel task-force on Wednesday demanded soldiers who staged a military coup in Mali release President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and other senior officials.

“The Presidents of the G5 Sahel wish to express their unwavering attachment to constitutional order and to the respect of democratically established institutions,” the group said in a statement.
