Thousands of people are flocking to see the outside wall of a toilet in central Bamako, Mali’s capital, where a vision of a praying man is said to have appeared. A white image appeared on the wall last Saturday evening and has been changing shape ever since, believers have alleged.
People have formed long queues outside the compound of the Traore family near the Ousmane Kalapo mosque.
A BBC reporter visited the compound, and said the image seemed like a drying patch of cement in the shape of a standing woman. “It changes shape every day. Sometimes the white apparition leaves the wall altogether and moves around the compound. Then it goes back,” said Aliou Traore, who lives in the compound.
