Britons in Mali urged to leave
The Foreign Office has changed its travel advice to Britons in Mali, urging all but those who have urgent business there to leave.
The new advice follows an attempted coup in the West African country on March 21 and specifically warns those in the capital, Bamako, to be cautious.
In a statement, the Foreign Office said: "We advise against all travel to Mali and you should leave if you have no pressing need to remain."
The Foreign Office said a curfew that had been imposed from 6pm to 6am had now been lifted, but added: "We continue to advise British nationals in Bamako to exercise caution and stay away from crowds and demonstrations when travelling around the city.
"There have been reports of some shops beginning to run low on supplies and of long queues forming outside some banks.
"Given ongoing instability in the country, and now that the airport has reopened, you should leave if you have no pressing need to remain."
