Burkina Faso freezes assets of failed coup leader

Burkina Faso's coup leader general Gilbert Diendere and his men stepped down following mediation brokered by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and under pressure from the regular armyBurkina Faso authorities froze the assets of General Gilbert Diendere, the leader of last week’s failed coup in the impoverished west African country. State prosecutors said in a statement they were also freezing the assets of 13 others involved in the putsch, as well those of four political parties linked to ex-president Blaise Compaore, who was ousted in a popular revolt last year. The asset freezes come a day after Burkina’s interim cabinet dissolved the elite presidential guard (RSP), which is loyal to Compaore and whose officers detained interim President Michel Kafando and Prime Minister Isaac Zida on September 16.
