Burkina ex-president Compaoré to be tried for Thomas Sankara's murder


In tonight's edition: In Burkina Faso,  judges have ruled that the former president Blaise Compaoré must stand trial for his role in the assassination of Thomas Sankara who he overthrew in a coup d'état in 1987. And a Tuareg leader in Mali has been shot dead in the capital Bamako. Sidi Brahim Ould Sidati was a key figure in a 2015 peace accord. And a major step forward for the protection of women and children in Gabon, as customary marriages are finally recognised by the state.
