Mali Swears in New Constitutional Court Judges

There are now nine new members of Mali's constitutional court after a ceremony attended by President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who leads mediation by the Ecowas regional bloc. This is part of efforts to stop a standoff between authorities and the opposition. The constitutional court was at the heart of a crisis in the country leading to a widespread protest movement calling for Keita's resignation.
