Burkina Faso's military has said it will install a transitional government, days after it seized power after President Blaise Compaore resigned.

The move came after soldiers fired shots at the state TV station and barricaded the capital's main square as thousands of protesters demanded the military give up power.

At least one demonstrator was killed in yesterday's clashes.

The UN has also condemned the military takeover and threatened sanctions.

Long-time leader, Compaore quit last week Thursday following days of anti-government protests.
