Ouagadougou – Authorities in Burkina Faso named former foreign minister Michel Kafando as transitional president on Monday in an important step towards returning the West African country to democracy after a brief military takeover.

Kafando was chosen as part of a charter hammered out after long-time President Blaise Compaore was toppled on 31 October after mass protests. Compaore was replaced a day later by Lieutenant Colonel Isaac Zida.
