The United Nations has condemned an attempted coup in Burkina Faso after the country’s president was reportedly detained following a insurrection by soldiers.

The UN’s Secretary-General, António Guterres, says he is deeply concerned by the situation in that country adding that any attempt to take over a government by the force of arms is unacceptable.

Bukina Faso’s military announced on national television that it has seized power and overthrown president Roch Kaboré. The group called Patriotic Movement has put in place an overnight curfew, stating that the government and national assembly were dissolved and the constitution suspended.

Guterres’ spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric explains.
