History[edit | edit source]
The country became self-governing in 1958 with the name Upper Volta, and it became completely independent in 1960.
In late October 2014, an uprising occurred after President Blaise Compaoré attempted to amend the constitution in order to continue his 27-year rule. He was forced to resign on October 31, 2014.
