France has officially┬áended its operations┬áin Burkina Faso on Feb. 20, a month after the ruling┬ájunta there terminated a military accord that allowed the former colonial power to fight jihadists. French forces remain in the greater region, however. The move came as French┬áDefense Minister Sebastien Lecornu┬ávisited C├┤te d’Ivoire, pledging to boost military support as jihadist attacks hit coastal West African states. (TNH)
