OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — More than a dozen members of the army have appeared on Burkina Faso’s state broadcaster to declare they have overthrown the country’s coup leader. In a statement carried Friday night, their spokesman declared that Lt. Col. Paul Henri Sandaogo Damiba was no longer in control of the country. They say Capt. Ibrahim Traore is Burkina Faso’s new leader. Damiba and his allies had overthrown the democratically elected president only nine months ago, coming to power with promises of make the country more secure. However, violence has continued unabated and frustration with his leadership has grown in recent months.
