Burkina military restores constitution, gives deadline for new leader

OUAGADOUGOU (Reuters) - Burkina Faso's military ruler said on Saturday he had restored the constitution that was suspended when President Blaise Compaore was toppled after mass protests last month.

Lieutenant Colonel Isaac Zida, who declared himself head of state on Nov. 1 after Compaore resigned and fled the country, said political figures had until 1200 GMT on Sunday to propose a leader of the transition to civilian rule.
