BAMAKO, Mar 22 – Malian President Amadou Toumani Toure, who was forced to flee his palace during an overnight coup, is well and in a safe location, a loyalist military source told AFP Thursday.

Toure, who was to step down after an election scheduled for April 29, is “in good health… and in a safe location” following the seizure of power by a group of renegade soldiers, the official said without elaborating.
