Burkina Faso coup Crowds celebrate after army ousts President Roch Kabore



 More than 1,000 people gathered in Burkina Faso's capital Ouagadougou on Tuesday to celebrate the West Africa nation's coup a day after the army announced it had ousted President Roch Kabore, suspended the constitution, dissolved the government and the national assembly, and closed the country's borders.

 Soldiers announced they had overthrown Kabore on Monday, a move condemned internationally but welcomed by some at home tired of widespread insecurity, alleged corruption and deep poverty. Kabore's whereabouts were unknown on Tuesday. 

The MPSR has said he was detained at a secure location. Vehicles belonging to the presidential fleet were seen riddled with bullets near Kabore's residence on Monday. 

 The United States, the United Nations, ECOWAS and the G5 group of Sahel nations all condemned the coup.
