President Blaise Compaore stepped down Friday Oct. 31, 2014 after 27 years in power and said elections would be held in 90 days following a wave of protests against his rule.  The announcement, read out on television, was a sharp about-face from the day before, when protesters stormed the parliament but Compaore vowed to hold power through next year.
