Burkina Faso and France have agreed to accelerate the deployment of a multinational military force to combat armed groups in West Africa after a deadly attack on a restaurant in the capital.

At least 18 people were killed when armed men took hostages. After a seven hour gunfight, the two attackers were shot dead.
