The military junta in Mali has ordered the French ambassador in the country to leave in the next 24 hours, global news agencies have reported.

Pro-coup protesters after the ouster of Ibrahim Boubakar Keita in 2020, waved Russian flags and placards calling out the French government.

Mali is currently suspended from regional and continental blocs, ECOWAS and AU, as a result of the coup that brought Goita to power.
