OUAGADOUGOU: Se­cu­rity of­fi­cials say they have foiled an­other coup plot, blam­ing it on for­mer pres­i­den­tial guards. At least 10 peo­ple have been ar­rested, while the top sus­pect re­mains on the run.

Au­thor­i­ties say the at­tempt was planned by forces loyal to for­mer pres­i­dent Blaise Com­paore, who was forced to re­sign two years ago.

The 1 300- mem­ber pres­i­den­tial guard was dis­man­tled last year af­ter they tried to over­throw a tran­si­tional gov­ern­ment.
