Washington - AFP

The World Bank and the African Development Bank announced Thursday they were suspending development aid to Mali after President Amadou Toumani Toure was ousted in a coup. The two multilateral lending institutions said they were joining the African Union and the West Africa regional bloc ECOWAS in \"condemning the military coup, urging a speedy resolution of the crisis and calling for the restoration of constitutional government to preserve the development gains of the country and its people.\" \"Our development operations are suspended, with the exception of emergency assistance,\" they added in a joint statement. A World Bank spokesman confirmed the suspension means the bank will not approve any new development projects or programs until the crisis is resolved, unless they fall into the category of emergency assistance. The banks noted that Mali was in the final stages of preparing for democratic elections due to take place next month, and had made \"steady economic and social progress, and strengthened its democratic governance\" in recent years. What began Wednesday as a mutiny over the government\'s response to the rekindled Tuareg insurrection turned into a full-blown coup as soldiers seized control of the presidential palace and state broadcaster. Mali is usually seen as politically stable, but smoldering troubles in the north where Tuareg tribes have long felt ignored by a southern government and where Al-Qaeda has taken deep root have turned the region into a tinderbox. This was ignited when the demise of Libya\'s Moamer Kadhafi sparked the return of hundreds of heavily-armed Tuareg who had fought for him and were ready to take up a decades-long struggle for independence.
