Amnesty warns Mali is ‘on brink of major disaster’ | BBC News

Mali is on the brink of a major humanitarian disaster following a coup and rebellion in the north, Amnesty International says.

The human rights group says aid agencies must be allowed immediate access to the country, to prevent more civilians dying.

Some fighters in the north have said they have stopped military operations.

But Amnesty says all food supplies and medicines stored by aid agencies have been looted and most workers have fled.
