Event

The alert states that the Platform for the Awakening and Reform of the Association of Malian Students (CRR-AEEM) group has called for supporters to gather at Monument de l'Independence at 10:00 (local time) before marching to the Ministry of Higher Education, near Cité Administrative.

Though the reason for the demonstration remains unclear, a heightened security presence and associated disruptions should be expected in the vicinity of the march route. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.
