Thomas Sankara

Decades after the assassination of revolutionary leader Thomas Sankara – commonly known as the African Che Guevara – a trial has gotten underway to find his killers.

Former Burkina Faso President Blaise Compoare is among 13 suspects charged. But he says he will boycott the trial.

Sankara and several others were riddled with bullets in October 1987 in a coup that saw Compoare come to power.

Why has it taken this for the case to be prosecuted?
