FCO: Travel advice update for Mali31st March 2012 The UK Foreign Office have released the following update:
The overall level of the travel advice to Mali has changed: we advise against all travel to Mali and you should leave if you have no pressing need to remain.
There was an attempted coup d’état on 21 March 2012. A curfew imposed from 18:00 to 06:00 has now been lifted, but we continue to advise British nationals in Bamako to exercise caution and stay away from crowds and demonstrations when travelling around the city. There have been reports of some shops beginning to run low on supplies and of long queues forming outside some banks.
Given ongoing instability in the country, and now that the airport has re-opened, you should leave if you have no pressing need to remain.
