Mali's President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita announces resignation after armed Mutiny

Mali’s president announced his resignation, just hours after armed soldiers seized him from his home in a dramatic power grab following months of protests demanding his ouster.
The news of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita’s departure was met with jubilation by anti-government demonstrators and alarm by former colonial ruler France, and other allies and foreign nations.
