The US embassy in Mali issued an alert on Tuesday, July 14, stating that the group Mouvement du 5 Juin - Rassemblement des Forces Patriotiques has called for protests in Bamako on Wednesday, July 15. The protests will reportedly target the bridges of the capital. The US embassy has advised those in the area to avoid unnecessary travel on Wednesday.

Protests in Mali have previously turned violent and resulted in clashes between demonstrators and security forces, the burning of tires, barricades on bridges and roads, and security forces using tear gas to disperse crowds.

Associated business and transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are to be anticipated near all demonstration sites. Protests are possible elsewhere in Mali.


Individuals in Mali are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
