U.N. Security Council calls for release of Mali officials


NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.N. Security Council on Wednesday called for the “safe, immediate and unconditional release” of all officials detained in Mali by elements of the defence and security forces.

The 15-member council also “urged the defence and security forces elements to return to their barracks without delay” in a statement agreed by consensus, diplomats said.
