ABUJA and ADDIS ABABA - The African Union and West African regional bloc condemned army interference in Mali's politics on Wednesday after the prime minister was forced to resign.

They did not say how that would affect a plan for regional military intervention in northern Mali to help drive out Islamists and Tuareg separatists who seized two-thirds of the country in the chaos after a March coup.

Although the soldiers gave way to a civilian president and prime minister in April under international pressure, they have never been far from power.
