Burkina coup leaders sign deal with army to stand down

Burkina Faso army troops stand guard outside Guillaume Ouedraogo military camp in Ouagadougou on September 22, 2015Burkina Faso coup leaders agreed to return to their barracks and said they would restore the deposed president to power, signing a deal with the army that apparently defuses a tense standoff sparked by last week’s putsch. The deal was signed a day after troops entered Burkina’s capital Ouagadougou, turning up the pressure on the elite presidential guards (RSP) who staged the coup. Under its terms, the RSP agreed to stand down from the positions they had taken up in Ouagadougou, while the army also agreed to withdraw its troops and guarantee the safety of the RSP members as well as their families.
