Burkina Faso’s junta says its intelligence and security services have foiled a coup attempt

  • Burkina Faso's military junta foiled a coup attempt by relying on its intelligence and security services. The junta commended the defense and security forces for their actions in thwarting the coup.
  • Last year, Burkina Faso experienced two military coups triggered by the insurgency of armed groups linked to al Qaeda and Islamic State, destabilizing the country. This led to the rise of a military junta, which has taken power in several West African countries due to the unfulfilled promises of elected governments.
  • In response to tension and discontent within the armed forces, thousands of pro-junta demonstrators took to the streets, expressing their support for the military government. Burkina Faso's junta aims to conduct elections by July 2024 to restore democratic rule.
