Hundreds of protesters held demonstrations in Burkina Faso’s capital Ouagadougou on Tuesday demanding the resignation of President Roch Kabore.
The protesters accuse the president of failing to rein in militants in the north and east who last weekend killed 28 soldiers and four civilians.
The country is holding three days of national mourning that began on Tuesday over the latest attacks.
A dozen civilians were killed at the beginning of the month in an attack by gunmen as they were going to a weekly market near the northern border with Mali.
