Burkina Faso’s ousted leader ‘doing well’

Burkina Faso’s ousted President Roch Kaboré is doing well, a senior member of his party said.

This comes days after the military coup that was strongly condemned by the international community.

Mr Kaboré is detained in a presidential villa under house arrest, he is physically well and has a doctor at his disposal, according to a senior member of his party, the People’s Movement for Progress (MPP).

For several hours on Monday, the fate of the ousted president remained unclear, with conflicting information circulating about an arrest, an exfiltration, or even an assassination attempt.

An extraordinary virtual summit of the west African regional bloc Ecowas will be held on Friday to discuss the situation in Burkina Faso after Mr Kaboré was overthrown, with possible sanctions against the military.
