BAMAKO (AFP) - Several people were killed in a gunfight Monday between Mali coup troops and the presidential guard loyal to ousted leader Amadou Toumani Toure at the national TV and radio station, said employees.

"There were deaths" in the gunfight after the presidential guard tried to take back the station, which has been held by rebel soldiers since the March 22 coup, said an employee who asked not to be named, without giving numbers.
