Protesters Storm, Burn Burkina Faso Parliament

Protesters Storm, Burn Burkina Faso Parliament | Best of Photojournalism | Scoop.it

Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, has been the scene of violent protests today, as demonstrators vent their anger over a proposal to extend President Blaise Compaore's 27-year rule. The storming of the parliament building today marked the culmination of several days of demonstrations. A reported 1,500 protesters ransacked offices and set buildings, documents, equipment, and vehicles ablaze. Security forces attempted to control the crowds using tear gas and live rounds. Emergency services said at least three protesters have been shot dead and several others wounded so far. Ouagadougou airport is now closed, and state TV is off the air. The violent reaction has led the government to scrap the planned presidential term extension, but opposition protesters are now calling for Compaore's resignation.
