    An appeal court in the French capital of Paris on Wednesday approved an extradition request by Burkina Faso’s government for the brother of ex-Burkinabe president Blaise Compaore.

    French police detained Francois Compaore at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris in October last year on an international arrest warrant related to the 1998 murder of Norbert Zongo, who published Burkina Faso’s Independent newspaper.
