According to a report in L'Intelligent d'Abidjan (p. 3), the military junta in Mali denounced decisions by the regional bloc ECOWAS on how the country's transition should go forward. In a statement made Saturday, the leader of the junta, Captain Amadou Sanogo, complained that he was not consulted on the decisions made at the ECOWAS meeting in Abidjan last week and that Mali is sticking to the accord soldiers signed with ECOWAS in early April.
