ECOWAS leaders meet with Mali junta on deadline day.

Mali’s junta must name a civilian interim leader on Tuesday, as the military chiefs meet with West African leaders who are also calling for fresh elections within a year.

The bloc has set an ultimatum for a return to democratic rule within a year and has called for a civilian to take the top job in the meantime.
