People celebrate in Ouagadougou on October 31, 2014 after Burkina Faso's embattled President Blaise Compaore announced he was stepping down to make way for electionsRival military factions laid claim to power in Burkina Faso on Saturday after the west African nation's president fled following days of violent unrest over plans to extend his 27-year rule. The leader of a group of young army officers, Isaac Zida, declared himself in charge, dismissing as "obsolete" an earlier such bid by the army chief and close ally of the ousted president. The tussle for power comes after days of violent demonstrations against president Blaise Compaore's longtime rule that saw parliament stormed and set ablaze, in protests closely watched across the continent where other veteran heads of state are also aiming to extend their rule. A rival claim made hours earlier by army chief Navere Honore Traore was "obsolete", he said.
