Twitter tells me by way of local freelancers that the TV station seized in the Malian coup yesterday is now playing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I don't know whether that's the proper one with Gene Wilder or the remake.
Elsewhere, here's a theory from a few years back as to why coups always seem to be led by mid ranking officers. I have four words: Master Sargeant Samuel Doe.
UPDATE: By way of actually providing some information to go with the blogging, here's an extensive backgrounder on the coup and the developments leading up to it. the gist is that the Malian army were unhappy with the support they were getting in their conflict with heavily armed Tuareg returnees from the Libyan conflict.
