Burkina Faso expels French defense attache: Reports

“The attaché has been expelled along with personnel of the French military office in (the capital) Ouagadougou,” Omega Radio reported, citing a statement by authorities to the French Foreign Ministry.
Pasquier is accused of carrying out “subversive activities.”
A letter by Burkina Faso’s Foreign Ministry also notified France of the immediate closure of the Burkinabe military mission in Paris, according to the report.
Relations between France and Burkina Faso have soured since the September 2022 military coup when Capt. Ibrahim Traore assumed power.
