Angry Protesters Beat Mali's President To Stupor

Mali’s President, Dioncounda Traore, was
on Monday beaten mercilessly by
hundreds of protesters who stormed
his palace to demand his resignation. His
condition after the attack is so bad that
he was rushed to the hospital.

A spokesman for the soldiers behind a
March 22 coup said the interim
President’s close-protection officers
killed three of the protesters, after
which they gained access into the
palace and even tore the clothes and
pictures of President Traore.

“They beat him seriously and tore his
clothes,” military spokesman Bakary
Mariko told Reuters news agency…
we gathered that the
serious security breach is now a subject
of investigation by the country's
security leadership.
