Troops in Mali have attacked the presidential palace in the capital Bamako hours after staging a mutiny.
The renegade troops traded gunfire with soldiers loyal to the government.
The mutineers say the government is not giving them enough arms to battle a rebellion by ethnic Tuaregs.
There has been heavy gunfire in Bamako and armoured vehicles have moved in to protect the presidential palace.
