Mali expels U.N. spokesman:

- — From news services

Mali’s military government has given the spokesman for the United Nations peacekeepi­ng MINUSMA mission 72 hours to leave the country amid a standoff between the West African nation and Ivory Coast over the detention of 49 troops who came to Mali to support a security group contracted by the U.N. mission. Mali said the soldiers had arrived without permission. Ivory Coast said Mali had been informed. Mali has since suspended rotations for U.N. missions.
