Burkina Faso: Luxury five star hotel set AFLAME amid nationwide unrest

The five-star Azalaï Hotel Independence in Ouagadougou was ransacked during a wave of countrywide protests against proposed constitutional reform, Thursday. The incumbent president Blaise Compaoré has been in office since 1987 and sought an amendment to the constitution allowing him to stand for another term in 2015. The hotel is thought to have been targeted as it hosted deputies from the ruling Congress for Democracy and Progress party.

President Compaoré announced a state of emergency and the dissolution of his government via a radio broadcast, though his exact whereabouts are still unknown. Military leaders held a meeting with opposition figures and are expected to make an announcement later in the evening.
