The United Nations Security Council will hold emergency discussions on Mali Wednesday, a day after an apparent military coup in the crisis-torn West African country. 

The meeting was requested by France and Niger and will take place behind closed doors on Wednesday afternoon, a senior UN diplomat told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, United Nations head Antonio Guterres demanded “the immediate and unconditional release” of Mali’s president and members of his government Tuesday after they were seized by rebel soldiers.

“The secretary-general strongly condemns these actions and calls for the immediate restoration of constitutional order and rule of law in Mali,” a spokesman for Guterres said in a statement.
