France breaks off communications with Mali

France suspend all security involvement with Mali following a military coup and appealed for the restoration of the constitutional order in the poor West African country. Drunken soldiers have been looting the presidential palace since they declared a coup soldiers and suspended the constitutions in Mali, one of the few established democracies in that region of Africa. There's no firm word on the whereabouts of the country's president who had been just one month away from stepping down after a decade in office.
