UN Security Council strongly condemns military coup in Mali

New York (dpa) - The United Nations Security Council "strongly condemned" the military coup in Mali that forced President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to resign and led to his detention by some soldiers.

The UN's most powerful body "urged those mutineers to release safely and immediately all the officials detained, and to return to their barracks," and "underlined the urgent need to restore rule of law and to move towards the return to constitutional order."
The council's 15 members also called on the parties in Mali to "show restraint and give priority to dialogue to resolve the crisis."
The statement came before the Security Council was due to be briefed on Mali on Wednesday.
