Ex-Mali coup leader Gen. Amadou Sanogo moves out of military barracks to posh neighborhood

A spokesman for Mali's former coup leader says he has moved to a neighborhood in the capital set aside for former heads of state.
The coup leader was promoted from an army captain to a four-star general in August and now is living near newly elected President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.
Sanogo's new neighbors also include the president of the transitional civilian government that led Mali after the coup before the recent elections.
Sanogo's spokesman says he's feeling "very much at ease" in his new residence.
The ex-coup leader remains a divisive figure in Malian politics and human rights groups say he should face trial for abuses committed during his rule.
