Mali’s former president Amadou Toumani Toure, who led the Sahel nation for a decade before being ousted in a coup, is dead.

He died in Turkey at the age of 72, a family member and a doctor said on Tuesday.

“Amadou Toumani Toure died during the night of Monday to Tuesday in Turkey, where he had been taken for health reasons” his nephew Oumar Toure told AFP.

A hospital doctor in Bamako said the former leader had recently undergone heart surgery and was recuperating but was later transferred to Turkey where he died.


  1. May his soul rest in peace and I pray God Almighty gives his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this great loss in Jesus name.. Amen
