Explosions, gunfire at a military base near Mali’s capital

  Explosions, gunfire at a military base near Mali’s capital Mali’s military says two attackers have been neutralised after the latest attack on a military base.The military, which cordoned off the roads to Kati – about 15km (10 miles) northwest of Bamako – said on Friday it repelled a “terrorist attack” that used two explosive-laden vehicles.

Abdelmadjid Tebboune believes that the deterioration of the situation in Mali "sharpens the appetites of certain states".

ASEAN foreign ministers to push for tougher action on Myanmar .
Malaysia is set to lead a push for tougher action on Myanmar when a regional bloc of foreign ministers meet this week, as anger mounts at the junta for stonewalling crisis resolution efforts. Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan characterised the executions as a "grave setback" to ASEAN's efforts to resolve the crisis, while Thailand's foreign ministry spokesman Tanee Sangrat said the move "aggravates the vexing problems of Myanmar".The 10-country Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) -- which has spearheaded so far fruitless diplomatic efforts to restore peace -- last week condemned the junta's execution of four prisoners.
