BAMAKO - Presidential guard members loyal to Mali's ousted president Amadou Toumani Toure were trying to reclaim parts Bamako in a counter-coup on Monday, but junta forces remained in control, a junta spokesman said.

"These are elements of the presidential guard from the old regime and they're trying to turn things around," spokesman Bacary Mariko told Reuters. "We have the situation under control."
