Burkina Faso

An army mutiny which erupted last week in the West African state of Burkina Faso has spread to a fourth city.

Protests have now broken out in Kaya in the north of the country, following disturbances in Po and Tenkodogo.

The trouble started last Thursday when soldiers and presidential guards in the capital Ouagadougou protested about unpaid housing allowances.

Hours before the revolt broke out, tens of thousands of people had demonstrated against high food prices.
