At least 16 people are now known to have been killed in Friday's coordinated attacks in Burkina Faso.

Witnesses say the masked attackers used guns and explosives during the assault on the military headquarters and the French Embassy in the capital, Ouagadougou.

Fighters in the Sahel have repeatedly attacked Burkina Faso, but this was the most brazen raid yet.
