France is recalling its ambassador to Burkina Faso, a day after it announced that its military mission there was to end.

The French foreign ministry said Luc Hallade was returning for consultations on the state of relations between Paris and its former West African colony.

There have been weeks of demonstrations against the French presence in Burkina Faso, whose military rulers have been seeking military assistance from Russia to help defeat an Islamist insurgency.
