Opposition activists and security forces clashed in Mali's capital Bamako yesterday when two opposition alliances tried to stage election protests in defiance of a government ban.

Witnesses said police used tear gas to disperse protesters in the city centre, where groups of opposition militants burned tyres and called for the government to resign and for elections to be suspended and reorganised after chaotic weekend polling. Reuters - Bamako
