Mali declares a 10-day state of emergency effective at midnight, following a series of threats from unnamed jihadist groups, and last month's siege at a Bamako hotel, where 20 people were killed.

After a year of terror attacks, both governments have stopped public gatherings and boosted police powers. The restrictions will last over Christmas, during the Prophet Muhammad's birthday and into the New Year.
