Burkina Faso: Military declares coup d’etat after dissolving transitional government


Burkina Faso’s interim president, Michel Kafando, has been stripped of his functions and the government dissolved, a military official said on state-run RTB Television on Thursday.

“We have put in place a national democracy council tasked with organising democratic and inclusive elections,” said the unidentified official in military uniform.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed outrage on Wednesday at reports of the detention of Burkina Faso’s president and prime minister and several ministers, calling for their immediate release.

The presidential guard burst into a cabinet meeting earlier on Wednesday and arrested the interim president. The move comes less than a month before an election to complete a transition back to democracy after a popular uprising toppled Burkina’s long-time ruler last year.
