Burkina Faso 'returns to civilian rule'


A transition charter has been signed in Burkina Faso, signalling the country’s return to civilian rule.

The charter, signed on Sunday (November 16) afternoon according to AFP, should serve as an interim constitution.

It comes after the country was plunged into chaos last month by the toppling of President Blaise Compaore.

Lieutenant Colonel Isaac Zida, the country’s military ruler since Compaore’s ousting, signed the document, sparking long applause among the 200 people looking on.
