12:14pm: Air France extends suspension of flights to Mali and Burkina Faso

Air France has extended "until August 18" the suspension of its flights to and from Bamako and Ouagadougou "following the coup d'état in Niger and due to the geopolitical situation in the Sahel region", the airline said on Friday.

The carrier had announced on Monday that it was suspending flights to Mali and Burkina Faso until Friday inclusive, shortly after the closure of airspace in neighbouring Niger.

The authorities in Mali and Burkina Faso support the perpetrators of the coup d'état in Niger on July 26.

Don't call it a coup d'état ... Jake Sullivan. The U.S. will only recognize the legitimate president Mohamed Bazoum, he is not deposed.
