Three French diplomats expelled over alleged ‘subversive activities’ in Burkina Faso

The trio have been accused of "subversive activities", allegations that Paris denies. Relations between the two countries have been unravelling since 2022, when Burkina Faso saw its second coup in less than nine months.
