Burkina Faso’s interim President Michel Kafando, who was taken hostage during a coup a week ago, said on Wednesday he was back in power and had restored a civilian transitional government.

“I have returned to work,” he said in a brief speech to journalists at the foreign ministry in the capital.

“The transition is back and at this very minute is exercising the power of the state.”
