Burkina Faso is one of the poorest and most troubled countries in the world, and it is facing an ongoing jihadist insurgency that started in 2015.

The current junta leader is Ibrahim Traore, an army captain who took control last September at just 34 years old. All those on the most recent wanted list were born in Burkina Faso, except for Sita Housseini who hails from neighboring Niger.
