Mali coup: Junta forces 'overrun rivals' camp'


Pro-junta forces in Mali have taken control of the main anti-junta military base after two days of fighting in the capital, Bamako, witnesses say.

Junta forces are going through the camp looking for any remaining troops, a witness told the BBC.

The shooting broke out late on Monday after reports that the leaders of the presidential guard would be arrested.

The army toppled President Amadou Toumani Toure in March but officially stepped aside three weeks later.

The BBC's Mike Wooldridge reports.
