Burkina Faso military says takes power, dissolves government

“Burkina Faso’s military said on Thursday it had stripped interim President Michel Kafando of his functions and dissolved the government, seizing power in a coup less than a month before elections meant to restore democracy in the West African country. Burkina Faso was plunged into chaos on Wednesday when the elite Republican Guard — a pillar of long-time former President Blaise Compaore’s regime — seized Kafando, Prime Minister Yacouba Isaac Zida, and two ministers.”
