Ecowas sends troops to Guinea Bissau but not Mali
Issued on: Modified:
The Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) is preparing to send 600 troops to Guinea Bissau on Friday following last month's coup in the former Portuguese colony. But the regional body has not made a military commitment to Mali to help with the restoration of democracy following a coup in that country. How is Ecowas responding to the situations in Guinea Bissau and Mali?
