Plotters arrested in Burkina Faso

By on December 29, 2015

About 20 soldiers have been arrested in Burkina Faso for plotting to free the leader of September’s coup, Gen Gilbert Diendere, officials have said.
The 20 were arrested during a raid in the capital, Ouagadougou, on Monday, Prime Minister Isaac Zida said.
The group had also planned to free other coup plotters, and re-establish the elite presidential guard which Gen Diendere headed, he added.
Gen Diendere was charged in October for staging the short-lived coup.

In his reaction to the arrest of the soldiers, Mr Kabore said that “justice will run its course”.
Roch Marc Christian Kabore is due to be sworn in as president.
He won elections last month, the first since long-serving ruler Blaise Compaore was ousted in a popular uprising last year.
