PROTEST ROCKS BURKINA FASO OVER VIOLENCE LINKED TO AL-QAEDA

Reports indicate that protests erupted over the weekend in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso’s capital as citizens agitated against the Government’s inability to curtail killings linked to Islamic State Group, Al-Qaeda.


Hundreds of protesters, who hit the streets on Saturday barricaded roads, and set tyres ablaze, calling for the resignation of President Roch Marc Christian Kabore.


The demonstration follows an attack by Al-Qaeda earlier in November in the Sahel’s Soum province earlier this month, where more than 50 security operatives were killed.


The unrest against the government also comes in the wake of anti-French protests last week, where at least four people were injured when French forces fired warning shots at protesters in Kaya. 


Several protesters from Bobo Dioulasso (west), Ouagadougou and Kaya areas, repelled the passage of large French Army logistics on transit via Burkina Faso-Mali-Niger. 


The Government’s crackdown on the protesters follows a week of a mobile internet shutdown, which the government said was for national security reasons.
