A polling station chief has been killed by suspected jihadists in northern Mali amidst reports of insecurity which has disrupted the presidential runoff.
Security had been drastically boosted ahead of the election’s second round between President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and former Finance Minister Soumaila Cisse.
Several polling stations were closed in the restive central and northern regions due to security concerns.
The first round vote on July 29 was marred by violence and threats from armed groups.
Authorities say they disrupted a plot to carry out “targeted attacks” in the capital Bamako on the eve of the election.
