UN calls for immediate release of Mali President Bah Ndaw

UN chief António Guterres has demanded the immediate release of Mali's President Bah Ndaw and PM Moctar Ouane, who have been detained by soldiers.

They were driven by soldiers to a military camp near the capital, Bamako.

The two men have been leading an interim government which took power after a military coup last August.

They were detained just hours after a government reshuffle in which two army officers who took part in the coup were replaced.
