10 people killed in two attacks in Burkina Faso

At least 10 civilians were killed in two attacks by suspected jihadists in the Burkina Faso town of Dassa, according to AFP citing security and local sources on Friday.

Late on Thursday, two groups of armed men attacked two areas in Dassa, a commune in west-central Burkina Faso around 140 kilometers (90 miles) west of the capital Ouagadougou, killing 12 civilians, a resident said.

Burkina Faso has been targeted by jihadist attacks since 2015. /AFPA security source confirmed the two attacks, saying there was “a provisional toll of around 10 victims”.

Security in Burkina Faso has worsened since 2015 as attacks have killed more than 1,000 people and displaced more than 1.9 million others in the West African nation.


Earlier this month, Burkina Faso set up a patriotic support fund as part of the fight against terrorism in the troubled country.
