Burkina Faso coup leader given ultimatum

OUAGADOUGOU - Burkina Faso's army has given the coup leader an ultimatum to surrender or face an assault, as its troops reach the capital, Ouagadougou.

Negotiations between army chiefs and the presidential guard are under way to avert bloodshed, security sources said.

Gen Gilbert Diendere seized power last week after opposing moves to integrate the presidential guard into the army.

He has released the president and the prime minister, following talks brokered by mediators.

The coup has been widely condemned, with the African Union suspending Burkina Faso's membership.

The presidential guard has until 10:00 GMT to give up power, or troops will launch an assault to retake the capital, a senior officer has told the BBC French service.
