Burkina Faso : Military bases in Capital attacked.

(Ouagadougou) Gunmen have launched twin attacks in the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, against the French embassy and army headquarters. Eight security personnel and eight attackers were killed in the fighting while 80 people including civilians, were wounded, officials say.
 Funny enough Under very high security more than 80 people went on trial Tuesday  in a military court over a failed 2015 coup in a case being seen as a test for justice in the West African country. The two generals accused of masterminding the plot, Gilbert Diendere and Djibrill Bassole,  just happened to be cheered by supporters as they arrived at the court in the capital Ouagadougou.
