AU suspends Mali's membership after coup

ADDIS ABABA, March 23 (Reuters) - The African Union said on Friday it had suspended Mali’s membership after mutinous soldiers staged a coup against President Amadou Toumani Toure this week.

“(The) council decided Mali should be suspended from further participation in all its activities until effective restoration of constitutional order is achieved without delay,” Paul Lolo, chairman of the African Union’s Peace and Security Council, said.
