 BREAKING Burkina Faso army captain announces overthrow of military government

 

Burkina Faso army Captain Ibrahim Traore has ousted military leader Paul-Henri Damiba and dissolved the government in the West African country’s second coup in eight months, he said in a statement read on national television on Friday evening.

He also announced the suspension of the constitution and transitional charter.

He said a group of officers had decided to remove Mr Damiba due to his inability to deal with a worsening armed uprising in the country, adding that the country’s borders have been closed indefinitely and all political and civil society activities were suspended.
