A unit of guards that carried out a coup in Burkina Faso before handing back power is refusing to disarm.
The chief of army staff accused presidential guards of intimidating people carrying out the disarmament.
Interim President Michel Kafando was formally reinstated on Wednesday after an intervention from the army and several West African leaders.
On Friday, his government ordered the presidential guards’ unit that carried out the coup to be disbanded.
The presidential guards – known as the RSP – are a unit of 1,200 well-armed and well-trained men loyal to Blaise Compaore, the country’s long-time ruler who was ousted in a popular uprising which set alight the parliament building last year.
Members of the RSP stormed the cabinet room on 16 September taking prisoner the interim president, the prime minister and others.
Coup leader Gen Gilbert Diendere said he seized power because of plans to disband the RSP and exclude Mr Compaore allies from standing in upcoming presidential elections.
At least 10 people were killed and more than 100 injured in clashes during the take over.
