Burkina Faso reports another attempted coup

Burkina Faso’s year-old coup government says a coup attempt had been thwarted by security and intelligence services, without providing specifics on what had happened. Reuters quotes the military junta as saying that officers and others had plotted to destabilise the country with “the dark intention of attacking the institutions of the Republic and plunging our country in chaos.” It did not identify anyone but said that four people had been detained and two were on the run.
