French President Emmanuel Macron is in West Africa for a three-day tour. On Monday, Macron visited Burkina Faso—a nation formerly colonized by France—where he promised to declassify documents related to the assassination of former leader Thomas Sankara. Sankara, who was often called “Africa’s Che Guevara,” was killed in a military coup in 1987.
