Today Bamako’s sky is bleeding. We feel like if we were in a sepia world !
(there’s no effect on this picture)
A group of junior officers in the West African state of Mali, upset over the conduct of a sporadic guerrilla war in the country’s north, has seized control of the country’s national television station and its presidential palace in an apparent coup attempt.
In an early morning broadcast on Thursday, a spokesman for the group said Mali’s institutions had been “dissolved” and its Constitution suspended….
The spokesman insisted that the group was not “in any way aiming at a seizure of power,” and promised a “restoration of democratic order.” He denounced the “incapacity of this regime to manage the crisis” in the country’s north, and its “inefficiency in fighting the terrorists.” The officers, he said, had “decided to take our responsibilities in place of an incompetent regime.”
Iggy Pop again, but his words are so true.
