Ouagadougou - Burkina Faso

// HistoryThe name Ouagadougou goes back to the 15th century when the Yonyonse and the Ninsi tribes inhabited the area. They were in constant conflict until 1441 when Wubri, a Yonyonse hero and an important figure in Burkina Faso’s history, led his tribe to victory. He then renamed the area from “Kumbee-Tenga,” as the Ninsi had called it, to “Wogodogo,” meaning "where people get honor and respect." Ouagadougou is a corruption of Wogodogo.

I need a map of the layout of Ouagadougou Airport in Burkina Faso. I have been unable to find one through search engines. A simple sketch of the airport will suffice. Ideally, I'd like to have a general idea of where the major areas inside the airport are (customs, terminals, lounges, etc). I don't care about runways or anything like that. Anyone who can provide me a link or draw me a sketch and post the answer here before 12:00 PM EDT will be picked as best answer. Just to put everyone at ease, I promise that this map will not be used for any illegal or immoral activity. Google Earth does not have images of high enough resolution for my purposes. I also need to know about the internal layout of the airport, which is information I cannot find with Google Earth. Thanks for the tip though :)
