Ouagadougou — Amnesty International says a French-Moroccan photographer who was wounded in the attack by extremists on a hotel in Burkina Faso has died of a heart attack.
The human rights group says Leila Alaoui was being treated in a hospital after being shot twice, and suffered a heart attack while awaiting medical evacuation.
Amnesty International said Tuesday that its driver, Mahamadi Ouedraogo, was killed in his car. Ouedraogo was a father of four and had accompanied staff and consultants on missions in Burkina Faso since 2008.
