Mali transitional government restores ousted Camara as defence minister

BAMAKO - Mali's transitional government has restored Colonel Sadio Camara, one of the leaders of the Aug. 2020 coup that ousted former president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, as defence minister, a statement read on national television said.

Camara's removal by a transitional government led to a second coup last week that removed President Bah Ndaw and Prime Minister Moctar Ouane.
