People gather as they take part in a sit-in on January 9, 2013 in Bamako to ask for ''immediate days of sovereign consultation'' on the transition in Mali. Mali, once considered one of the region's most stable democracies, was plunged into crisis by a March 22 coup that overthrew the elected government and created a power vacuum that enabled Ansar Dine and two Al-Qaeda-linked Islamist groups to seize control of the vast desert north. NATO said on January 9 that it had not been asked to assist a military alliance in resolving the armed conflict in Mali as Burkina Faso's president pushed for renewed talks between Islamist fighters and the Malian government.
