Burkina Faso's new military leader, Ibrahim Traore, has been officially appointed president of the country, Agence France-Presse reported.
Captain Ibrahim Traoré was appointed president of Burkina Faso on Wednesday, the report said.
In late September, media reported that a military group in Burkina Faso led by Capt. Ibrahim Traore announced the ouster of Lt. Col. Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba, head of the country's transitional government, the suspension of the country's constitution and the dissolution of the government. Damiba declared his willingness to resign voluntarily if several conditions are met by the rebels.
A delegation from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) visited Burkina Faso on Tuesday for talks with the country's new leadership.
