    Mali's ousted leader has found refuge in neighbouring Senegal, almost a month after a coup forced him to flee his presidential palace.

    Amadou Toumani Touré had already been sheltering in the Senegalese embassy in Mali amid ever- growing chaos.

    The coup emboldened Tuareg-led rebels to take control of northern Mali, declaring independence.
