Guinea's junta chief Moussa Dadis Camara has arrived in Burkina Faso from Morocco where he had been in hospital after an assassination attempt.

AFP - Guinea's junta chief Moussa Dadis Camara, hospitalised in Morocco after an attempt on his life last month, arrived in Burkina Faso on Tuesday and was lucid and speaking, an official said.

"He is lucid, he is speaking," a source in the office of Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaore told AFP.

Camara had been hospitalised in Rabat after being shot in the head by his aide de camp on December 3 following a dispute, allegedly over a bloody crackdown on an opposition rally.

Since the assassination attempt he has not appeared in public.

It was not immediately known if Camara planned to stay in Burkina Faso or travel to another country.

"We don't know yet, its for him to tell us. For the moment, he hasn't told us anything," said the presidential source.

Burkina Faso had provided a plane to evacuate Camara from Guinea to Morocco for hospital treatment.

Compaore has also acting as mediator between Guinea's new strongman, General Sekouba Konate, the defence minister, and the opposition.
