BAMAKO - Mali's interim president plans to appoint a new prime
minister within 24 hours to replace Cheick Modibo Diarra, who was forced to
resign on Tuesday following his arrest by soldiers who staged a coup in
Diarra's arrest underscored the military's continuing grip to
power in Mali and could complicate international efforts to help push Islamists
out of the north of the country.
