Transition President Michel Kafando who chaired the commission’s first session, said the reforms should respond to contemporary issues such as terrorist threats, organized crime, cross-border crime and collective conflicts.

The president urged the commission to consult widely with the political and military authorities before making recommendations that will greatly impact on the future of the country’s armed forces.

Burkina Faso, just like most of the countries in the Sahel region, has been facing terrorist menace for several months.

A convoy of vehicles carrying gold from the north of the country, was attacked two days before this year’s elections, by unknown armed assailants.

Five individuals suspected of belonging to terrorist groups were arrested and detained on Nov. 28 in Pakala, a village in the east of the country.

Three Burkina Faso police officers were killed on Oct. 9 during an attack at Samorogouan police post near the Malian border, by about 50 armed assailants who have not yet been identified. Explosive materials were later discovered a few kilometers from the scene of the attack. Enditem
