The situation in Burkina Faso is calming down but nine days ago the presidential guards seized control and placed President Michel Kafando and Prime Minister Yacouba Isaac Zida under arrest. The coup leaders have vowed to stop and the President has confirmed that he's been reinstated.

We here at ABC Iceland have learned that everything is getting back to normal in Burkina Faso. The capital is quiet now, major stores are re-opening and airport flights are resuming.

Our team leaders in the ABC school in Bobo, Hinrik Thorsteinsson and Gudny Ragnhildur Jonasdottir, went shopping yestarday to stock up and everything went well.
