Army man named Burkina Faso PM
The authorities in Burkina Faso have appointed an army officer, Lt Col Isaac Zida, as transitional prime minister, the BBC reported.
Col Zida had been among officers who took power when then President Blaise Compaore was forced to resign on 31 October during mass protests.
He declared himself head of state but on Tuesday oversaw the swearing-in of former Foreign Minister Michel Kafando as interim president.
The moves followed agreement on a year-long transition to elections.
The transitional charter imposes tight controls on the powers of Mr Kafando, who was the army's choice as interim leader.
The document calls for an interim legislative chamber to be installed until elections next year.
Col Zida is now expected to hold talks on forming a transitional government.
