Heavy gunfire in Burkina, govt denies army takeover

Arms fire began at the Sangoule Lamizana camp in the capital Ouagadougou as early as 5:00 a.m. a Reuters reporter said.

The reporter later saw soldiers firing into the air in the camp.

A witness also reported gunfire at a military camp in Kaya, around 62 miles north of the capital.

Burkina Faso's government confirmed gunfire at some military camps but denied reports on social media that the army had seized power.
