30 years on, FRANCE 24 meets sole survivor of Burkina Faso's counter-coup

In this week's edition: FRANCE 24 meets the sole survivor of Burkina Faso's bloody 1987 counter-coup; Ugandan police hunt a serial killer thought to have murdered 12 women; and Ethiopia's Simien Mountains National Park is no longer on UNESCO's danger list.

He was often dubbed "Africa's Ché Guevara": three decades after the assassination of Burkina Faso's former president Thomas Sankara, our correspondents return to the site of the bloody 1987 counter-coup.

Also, a serial killer and rapist is on the loose in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, forcing women to avoid leaving their homes at night.

And the so-called "Grand Canyon of Africa" is brought back from the brink. Ethiopia's Simien Mountains National Park is no longer on UNESCO's danger list.
