Mediators announce draft deal to end coup crisis in Burkina Faso

OUAGADOUGOU (Reuters) - Regional mediators seeking to peacefully roll back a military coup in Burkina Faso said that they had negotiated a draft deal on Sunday to end the crisis though they failed to secure the immediate restoration of civilian rule.

At a press conference in the capital Ouagadougou, Senegal’s President Macky Sall, who is West Africa regional bloc ECOWAS’ current chairman, said he would submit the proposal to a summit of heads of state in Nigeria on Tuesday.
