"All units (of the army mobilised on Monday to march on the capital) reached Ouagadougou overnight", Colonel Serge Alain Ouedraogo, Deputy Head of the Burkinabe Police said.
"We must now secure the surrender of the (coup leaders) without gunfire or bloodshed," he said.
He spoke after French ambassador Gilles Thibault tweeted that interim president Michel Kafando, who had been under house arrest, was now 'at the French residence'.
Kafando had been arrested on Wednesday as Burkina was plunged into turmoil when soldiers from the powerful presidential guard regiment loyal to ex-leader Blaise Compaore detained him and prime minister Isaac Zida, himself a former deputy commander of the unit.
