An anti-coup protester holds a Burkinabe flag in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, September 18, 2015. Security forces in the capital of Burkina Faso fired in the air on Friday to disperse demonstrators who burned tyres and blocked neighborhood streets to protest at a military coup this week that derailed a democratic transition. The head of a military junta in Burkina Faso which took power on Thursday has freed interim President Michel Kafando and two of his ministers, state television said on Friday.
