Saclay - French President Francois Hollande on Thursday condemned the "coup d'Etat" in Burkina Faso but said he saw "no reason" for French troops already based in the west African country to intervene.
"I call on these groups to immediately stop what they are doing," Hollande said in a speech to a university near Paris, but added that the 220 French troops currently based in the capital Ouagadougou "have no reason to intervene".
