The next few days are going to be critical in negotiations to resolve the political crisis in Burkina Faso, according to the top UN envoy in the region.

Mohammed Ibn Chambas the Special Representative for West Africa is following the talks from the Burkinabe capital, Ouagadougou.

The country was plunged into crisis after President Blaise Campaoré attempted to change the constitution and extend his 27 year rule.

He resigned in October and then fled the country in the face of popular protests.

To find out more about the talks, Derrick Mbatha spoke with Mr Ibn Chambas on the line from Ouagadougou.
