A French MP has called for an official inquiry into France’s role in the assassination of leftist icon Thomas Sankara, who was the president of Burkina Faso at the time. Sankara, often called “Africa’s Che Guevara”, headed a popular socialist revolution but was killed, many allege, thanks to the secret services of the United States and France.
