Dabire named new PM by Burkinabe president

Burkina Faso President Roch Marc Kabore has named Christophe Dabire, a former health minister and regional monetary union official, as his new prime minister, a presidency statement said on Monday. 

The previous cabinet, led by Prime Minister Paul Kaba Thieba, resigned on Friday amid deteriorating security along its borders with Mali and Niger.

Repeated attacks by militants prompted the government last month to declare states of emergency in several regions. A Canadian mine worker was found dead in the northeast last week after being abducted

Dabire is expected to name his cabinet in the coming days, a Reuters report confirmed.
