The violent collapse of Burkina Faso is getting worse. Last week, their military leader was removed in a coup, but some of his forces were planning a counter-attack, allegedly with the support of French forces. Since the coup, the ex-leader has agreed to step down, and is reportedly hiding in Togo. Islamist insurgents have, for several years, deprived government forces of more than a third of the landlocked nation’s total land, and displaced over 1M people (over 5% of the total population).
