Burkina Faso to expel top UN official in West African country

Ouagadougou, Dec 23 (Prensa Latina) Burkina Faso´s government on Friday expelled the top UN official in the country, asking her to leave immediately.

Barbara Manzi, the UN’ resident and humanitarian coordinator in the West African nation, was declared persona non grata, the foreign affairs ministry said in a statement.

While no reason was given in the statement for her expulsion, foreign minister Olivia Rouamba said on state television Friday that Manzi had raised the alarm about insecurity in the capital, Ouagadougou, without providing evidence.

Diplomatic sources informed the media that Manzi must leave after she was accused of plotting activities.

The measure comes a day after the Burkinabe authorities expelled two French nationals, previously arrested for espionage, and who were interested in learning about the country’s Defense and Security Forces activities, according to the AIB News Agency.
