BAMAKO (Reuters) - Local government administrators in Mali responsible for organising this month's presidential and legislative elections indefinitely extended a strike until demands for better safety and pay are met, a union representing them said on Tuesday.

The administrators' tasks include distributing identification cards needed to vote in the July 29 polls. They first launched a seven-day strike on June 25 to protest against their working and living conditions.
