Protests in Burkina Faso Decry the New Senate

Thousands in Burkina Faso are protesting the president’s creation of a new Senate which allows him to appoint 29 of the 89-member body himself. President Blaise Compaore has been in power for 26 years and protesters fear that he may use his grip on the Senate to amend the constitution’s two five-year term limit.
