PRETORIA - Coup supporters and members of the presidential guard have stormed a hotel where mediators were negotiating an end to last week's revolt.

Opponents of the military power grab have been setting up roadblocks and burning tyres to paralyse traffic across the country.

Over the weekend, regional mediators presidents Macky Sall of Senegal and Thomas Boni Yayi of Benin indicated they were in sight of the restoration of Burkina Faso's interim president Michel Kafando.

He was held after soldiers broke up a cabinet meeting early on Thursday.

Despite the raid on the hotel, Saal insists they've negotiated a draft deal to end the crisis.

It's uncertain whether the coup leaders will sign it with no undertaking by them to restore civilian rule.

Meanwhile, at least 10 people were killed and more than 100 injured in street clashes with soldiers since the coup.

The African Union suspended the West African country's membership and has given leaders until 22 September to restore the former government.
