The opposition in Mali has rejected a compromise deal proposed by West African leaders to end the political crisis in the country.
Presidents from the countries in the West African regional bloc Ecowas proposed a plan, which included resolving an election dispute by re-running polls for 31 MPs.
But the plan stopped short of the opposition group M5-RFP’s main demand – that President Ibrahim Boubacar KeÃ¯ta resign.
The country has been sliding into a political crisis for months.
Huge protests started after the Constitutional Court threw out 31 results from parliamentary elections in April, which benefited President KeÃ¯ta’s party.
Tens of thousands of people have gone out on to the streets in a series of demonstrations – at least 11 protesters were killed earlier this month.
