Mali's PM Soumeylow Boubeye Maiga resigns


Mali’s Prime Minister Soumeylou Boubeye Maiga has resigned along with his whole goverment, following a motion of no confidence over its failure to handle violence in the West African country.

In a statement, President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita’s office said the President accepts the resignation of the prime minister and that of the members of government.

On Wednesday, legislators had discussed a possible motion of no confidence in the government because of last month's massacre and failure to disarm militias. Last month, some 160 Fulani herders were killed by an ethnic vigilante group.
