(Reuters)—The leader of a military coup that plunged Mali into chaos last year has been summoned for questioning over six deaths during an army protest in September, the justice ministry said on Thursday, calling the incident a "mutiny".

General Amadou Sanogo overthrew Mali's President Amandou Toumani Toure in March 2012 and al Qaeda-linked fighters then seized half the country until a French-led intervention this year broke their grip.
