Mali is in the grip of violence

Let us tell you that Mali has been in the grip of violence since 2012. Then various groups associated with Al-Qaeda and Islamic State group had attacked here and caused devastation. After that, many small organizations have also carried out violent activities in the city and the administration has failed to ensure the safety of the people. Local people have also expressed displeasure over the working style and inaction of the administration. There is a local organization called Junta which has taken over by changing the power. Since ousting Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita in August 2020, the junta has established its rule. The organization has broken its long alliance with former colonial power France and fostered closer military and political ties with Russia.
