Interim Mali President Dioncounda Traore has been taken to hospital with a head wound after being attacked by demonstrators.

He is said to have been unconscious on arrival, but later left the hospital.

The army says it shot dead three people during mass protests by supporters of March's coup who were angry at a deal for Traore, 70, to remain in office for a year.

Traore's initial mandate was due to expire yesterday.
