Burkina Faso’s Interim President Restored To Power Officially

Burkina Faso’s interim leader Michel Kafando was officially restored to power at a ceremony attended by regional heads of state on Wednesday, a week after a coup by an elite army unit.

Kafando, who has led the landlocked west African country through its transition since a popular uprising last year deposed the former president, said “his main objective” now was to organize a general election.
