Russia is seen by some as an antagonist to France and potential replacement ally. There have been regular anti-France rallies since the latest military coup in September, which brought Capt Ibrahim Traoré to power. France has had a military base in Burkina Faso for several years, on the basis of cooperation agreements signed after independence in 1960.
I thought that having status in my community would make me feel complete, but I only feel more empty. ” Night Gospel Rallies As the Rwanda Mission continued throughout last week, the evenings were filled with neighbourhood gospel rallies which aimed to reach people with the Gospel as they came home from work. The AE teams played loud music and as people gathered to dance and sing with the team, they began preaching the Gospel to the crowd. Many people accepted Christ at these rallies throughout the week.

"English is a new common language that people have accepted, " Emmanuel Macron said at the Francophonie meeting. But he added that French remains "the universal language of the African continent". The Francophonie grouping - made up mainly of former French colonies - has been criticised for failing to take a stronger role in diplomacy and crisis resolution, while the current hosts Tunisia have received international condemnation for the president's recent power grab. On Friday, Tunisian police fired tear gas at protestors trying to reach the island of Djerba where the summit is happening. About 30 leaders - including those of Ivory Coast, Gabon, Rwanda, and Canada - are said to be attending this weekend's talks focusing on economic cooperation as well as responses to the Ukraine crisis.

It accuses the Kigali government of backing the M23 rebel group and trying to exploit DR Congo's minerals - something Rwanda denies. On Monday presidents and ministers from the region are due to meet in the latest effort to get the rebels to withdraw and stop the conflict escalating.

This situation is regularly criticised by civil society organisations and activists. In its statement, the Burkinabè government calls on the youth in particular not to be distracted, and to focus on the objectives of operational defence in the fight against jihadist-led violence and on development projects, instead of protesting.

Mr Kenyatta - who is acting as a mediator to try to stop the conflict - has just returned from North Kivu where the M23 rebel group has launched several offensives this year displacing more than a quarter of a million people. In public, President Kagame has always denied backing the M23 in eastern Congo. But according to a statement from Mr Kenyatta's office, the Rwandan leader has now agreed to use his influence to get the rebels to cease fire and withdraw from recently captured areas.

Yusuf Abdi Ali, known as Colonel Tukeh, was previously the commander of a military brigade during Siad Barre's dictatorship. Years after fleeing the region, allegations of abuses keep resurfacing. In 1992, Ali was deported from Canada after witnesses in a documentary said he'd ordered numerous murders. Ali later moved to the US and became an Uber driver, until three years ago a US jury convicted him of torturing a Somali teenager in 1987 - which he denied. Ali was ordered to pay $500, 000 (£420, 000) to the victim, who said he'd survived by bribing gravediggers to spare him. Now the man who was known as Col Tukeh has been detained, as US investigators look into widespread human rights abuses including murder and torture.
