There are reports of gunfire in the capital, Bamako.

Members of the military who staged a coup five weeks ago say they fought off an attempt by troops loyal to the ousted president to seize back power.

Lisa Nichols is Project Director with ATN Plus, a health project funded by USAID.

She's lived in Bamako for over eight years.

Anchor Marco Werman speaks with Nichols about her concerns for Malians displaced by the fighting.
