BREAKING: Mali ex-president Amadou Toure is dead

Mali’s former president Amadou Toumani Toure, who led the Sahel nation for 10 years before being ousted in a coup, has died in Turkey aged 72, a family member and a doctor said on Tuesday.

“Amadou Toumani Toure died during the night of Monday to Tuesday in Turkey,” where he had been taken for health reasons, his nephew Oumar Toure told AFP.

It’s been reported that he had undergone an emergency heart surgery in the capital, Bamako before his departure from Mali.

Toure was Mali’s President from 2002. He led the Sahel nation for 10 years before being deposed by a military coup in 2012 led by Amadou Haya Sanogo.
