Military junta announces control of Burkina Faso

TRT World says More than a dozen mutinous soldiers have declared on state television that a military junta seized control of Burkina Faso after the democratically elected president was detained following a day of gunbattles in the capital.

The announcement, signed by Lieutenant Colonel Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba and read by another officer on state television, said on Monday that the takeover had been carried out without violence and that those detained were at a secure location.

“MPSR, which includes all sections of the army, has decided to end President Kabore’s post today,” it said.
