Burkina Faso protest against Islamist terror turns violent - DW News.

Security forces have clashed with protesters in Burkina Faso's capital Ouagadougou. Tensions have been rising over the government's failure to rein in terrorist groups. Militants linked to al Qaida and the so-called Islamic State have killed thousands of people.
This protest had been banned by local authorities - but the residents of Ouagadougou are too angry to stay at home:
They say the government hasn't done enough to protect them from the violence carried out by militants from neighboring Mali.
The protesters set up barricades to block security forces, and some threw rocks. The police responded by firing tear gas into the crowd.
In November news broke of hundreds of jihadis storming a security post in the northern part of the West African nation, killing more than fifty people.
A public outcry followed that Burkina Faso's president tried to calm.
But discontent is growing. The protesters are now calling on the president to resign.
