Burkina Faso coup: Ousted military leader Damiba ‘resigns’

Published
Burkina Faso's new military leaders have called for calm and urged people to return to work.
Ibrahim Traore — who announced he was taking power on Friday — was seen parading through the capital Ouagadougou.
Meanwhile, removed President Paul-Henri Damiba offered his conditional resignation to Traore to avoid what he termed "confrontations with serious human and material consequences".
He has apparently fled to Togo.
