Amid security fears and organisational problems, Mali is preparing to hold a presidential election on July 28 - the first since a coup last year sparked a jihadist takeover of the north of the country followed by a French-led military intervention.

On July 28, Mali will hold its first presidential elections since a coup in March last year led to large parts of the north of the country being taken over by Tuareg separatists and jihadist groups, before an intervention by the French military.

It is hoped the elections will help unify the divided West African nation. But with just a few days to go before the first round of voting gets underway, organisational problems persist, particularly over voter registration.
