The army's seizure of power in Burkina Faso on Thursday amounted to a "coup", an opposition leader told AFP, adding that they consider the president's departure "non-negotiable".
President Blaise Compaore, who has ruled the country for 27 years, "is again in the process of duping the people," said opposition leader Benewende Sankara. "We have been saying for a long time that he must hand in his resignation. His departure is non-negotiable."
