Gunfire and explosions are reported in the capital of the landlocked, West African country of Burkina Faso only days after a newly elected president took office following an abortive coup in September by presidential guards against an interim government, according to news media reports.
The BBC quotes witnesses as saying two car bombs exploded outside the Hotel Splendid, which was then stormed by masked men. The four-story hotel in the central Ouagadougou, the capital, is frequented by the westerners and staff of the United Nations.
