Burkina Faso's government says it has fired 136 policemen who were involved in a mutiny last year.
Thursday's statement also said 32 policemen were reprimanded and two got warnings for joining soldiers in the April and May mutinies.
The government also says the policemen looted weapons, food and uniforms from a military camp.
Last year Burkina Faso saw uprisings for months after the death of a student in police custody. The unrest spread across Burkina Faso and soldiers started a mutiny that threatened President Blaise Compaore's rule. Compaore tried to stem the unrest by dissolving the government and removing the country's security chiefs.
The government says 15 people have died in violence since last February.
