The ex-coup leader of the Republic of Mali has been charged with various murders and assassinations.
Armed troops went to Amadou Sanogo’s home to take him before a judge, after which he was remanded in custody.
He has twice ignored a summons issued in October by a judge to answer questions about events surrounding the March 2012 coup.
It plunged Mali into chaos, allowing Islamist militants to take over territory in the north.
The al-Qaeda-linked insurgents were ousted from the major towns in the north with the help of France and West African troops earlier this year.
