Amid throngs of cheering Burkinabe and the honking of horns of hundreds of motos, the army filled their tanks and armored vehicles with gas, loaded up on sachets of water and hit the road for Ouagadougou.  Word is they have not arrived in Ouaga at the time of this writing, but are expected soon.

We are reassured that on this International Day of Peace, the army general has issued a statement that their sole aim is to disarm the RSP without any bloodshed.  They are asking for coup leaders to lay down their arms. This army wants peace!
