At Least 14 Killed in Attack on Burkina Faso Church

At Least 14 Killed in Attack on Burkina Faso Church”

At least 14 people have been killed after gunmen opened fire inside a church in Burkina Faso.

When posting on Twitter, President Roch Marc Christian Kabore said Sunday that he condemned "the barbaric attack" in the city of Hantoukoura.

Although there's a dearth of information regarding how the attack was carried out and who did it, members of the armed forces were caring for the wounded and combing the area for the unknown gunmen. He said several people were also injured.

Kabore offered his "deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded".

The conflict spread across the border from neighbouring Mali where Islamist militants took over the north of the country in 2012 before French troops pushed them out.

Most of the violence is attributed to jihadists affiliated with Al-Qaeda or the Islamic State group, with around 500,000 people internally displaced by attacks, according to the UN.

The unrest has ignited ethnic and religious tensions, rendering large parts of the country ungovernable.

No one has claimed responsibility, but Islamic extremists are suspected.

Hundreds have been killed over the past year and almost a million forced from their homes.
