Hundreds took to the streets of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, in a reported pro-junta march amid rumors of an internal coup within the Colonel Ibrahim Traore-led junta.
The exact nature of the alleged coup remains unverified.
Videos and photos from the scene depict a gathering primarily comprised of men, with some women and children present.
Some participants chanted slogans, sang, or observed the event, while others honked horns and blew whistles in the busy intersection.
Burkina Faso has witnessed multiple coups in recent years, including the removal of President Christian Roch Marc Kabore in 2022 by then-junta leader Sandaogo Damiba, who was subsequently ousted by the Ibrahim Traore-led junta six months later.
Ongoing insecurity has been a key factor in these political changes.
Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger, all currently under junta leadership, are part of an Alliance of the Sahel Nations working to combat the spread of terrorist violence in the region.
