Mali refuses to accept the body of Paris kosher deli terrorist Coulibaly the day before he was due to be buried

Mali has refused to accept the body of terrorist Amedy Coulibaly in a sudden U-turn the day before he was expected to be buried in the soil of his birth country.

The gunman who murdered four hostages in a Kosher delicatessen as well as a policewoman was due to be buried in Bamako today; instead he remains in a fridge in the Forensic Institute in Paris.

Malian authorities have reportedly given no reason for the change of heart, which means Coulibaly is now likely to be buried somewhere in France.
