Ouagadougou - Six West African leaders called on Saturday for the International Criminal Court to investigate "war crimes" in northern Mali, in a statement issued at the end of a summit on the crisis there.

"They are asking the International Criminal Court to proceed with necessary investigations to identify those responsible for war crimes and to take the necessary action against them," the statement said.

Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaore, the top mediator for the regional Economic Community of West African States, and five other heads, met in the Burkina Faso capital with several Malian leaders, though not the country's transitional president or prime minister.

The group also called on Mali to put in place by 31 July a "national unity government" that could put an end to the months-long crisis, after Islamists have taken control of Mali's northern half following a coup in Bamako.

Malian influence holders should draw up plans to "implement a roadmap to end the crisis," the statement said.
