Ousted Mali’s President Keita Has Been Freed By Coup Leaders, Says Junta Spokesman


Coup leaders in Mali have released ousted President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita from detention, a spokesman for the junta Djibrilla Maiga said on Thursday.

“He was freed this morning, (and) he has returned to his home,” he said, without giving further details.

Keita, who was overthrown in an Aug. 18 coup, had been in military custody. He is still being guarded by army officers since his release late Wednesday, said a person who spoke to Keita, declining to be identified because he’s not authorized to comment publicly on the matter.
