(CNN) -- [Updated 4 p.m. Monday, May 28] Thousands of Malians gather for a protest last week in front of the presidential compound in Bamako.
A mob stormed the palace last Monday and brutally beat up the country's 70-year-old interim president, Dioncounda Traore. They want Capt. Amadou Sanogo, the architect of March's military coup, to lead the government instead.
"Traore is part the same self-serving political elite that has misruled the country for years," protester Fadima Sy said.
On March 22, Sanogo and his group ousted the government of Amadou Toumani Toure, saying it was incompetent in handling the insurgency of Tuareg rebels.
Even though Mali is often hailed in the West as a beacon of stability, a model of African democracy, popular discontent has brewed under the surface, say many of its citizens. Amid the chaos, they are now trying to get their country back on track.
Congrats to Nabil Karroumi for being the first to answer Mali in our weekly photo challenge.
