Burkina Faso’s government has reportedly quashed yet another coup attempt just a year after a foiled coup attempt by members of the Presidential guard on September 30, 2015.

In September 2015, members of the elite Presidential guard installed Compaore’s former Chief of staff, General Gilbert Diendere as Head of state before the coup was crushed.

The country’s Interior Minister, Simon Compaore disclosed that the plotters attempted to free the September 2015 coupists and also planned an attack on the Presidential Palace.

The attempted coup was to be carried out on October 8 by forces still loyal to former President, Blaise Compaore and two of the plotters were killed as they tried to gain entrance to the capital.

10 other people have also been arrested in the aftermath of the coup.
