Burkina Faso attack: 'Nowhere in this world is safe any more'

A survivor of the terror attack in Burkina Faso, which saw at least 29 people from 9 different countries die, has spoken about the moment he was shot.

Alassane Baguian, an American citizen, said that he had no idea that he would survive and feared that he would become "a dead man".

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has said it carried out the attack, which began on Friday night.

The BBC's Thomas Fessy, spoke to him from his hospital bed in the capital Ouagadougou.
