PREMIER COMMUNIQUE DU CNRDR 21-3-2012 - 4.30 GMT - TRAORE ET SANOGO Renegade Malian soldiers went on state television yesterday to declare they had seized power in protest at the government's failure to quell a touareg ethnic rebellion in the north of the country led by a group called MNLA regrouping former touareg mercenaries of deposed Libyan dictator Gaddafi (http://youtu.be/y9ExfIL1acg) (http://youtu.be/c43xXu4ggwY) (http://youtu.be/CrcNfBnETw4) (http://youtu.be/k7guBXkQ2sw) (http://youtu.be/Q2jBc-1z9po) (http://youtu.be/8_0hn_bKwXM), under leadership of Mohamed Nagem, and fighters affiliated with a salafist brigade called "Ansar Eddine" under leadership of Iyad ag Ghaly (http://youtu.be/tr6C49Zvhlc) (http://youtu.be/Aypy-cNKMn0). The coup has been fronted by soldiers of the rank, under leadership of lieutenant Amadou Konaré and captain Amadou Sanogo. The army has for weeks appealed to the government for better weapons to fight the northern Tuareg rebels, bolstered by heavily armed ethnic allies who fought to defend Qaddafi last year, but who have now returned to Mali after their defeat in Libya (http://youtu.be/y9ExfIL1acg). Members of the newly formed National Committee for the Return of Democracy and the Restoration of the State (CNRDR) read a statement after heavy weapons fire rang out around the presidential palace in the capital Bamako throughout the night. "The CNRDR ... has decided to assume its responsibilities by putting an end to the incompetent regime of [Malian President] Amadou Toumani Toure," said Lieutenant Amadou Konare, spokesman for the CNRDR. "We promise to hand power back to a democratically elected president as soon as the country is reunified and its integrity is no longer threatened," Konare, flanked by about two dozen soldiers, said in a statement marred by sound problems. A subsequent statement by Captain Amadou Sanogo, described as the president of the CNRDR, declared an immediate curfew "until further notice."
