18 Killed In Burkina Faso Terror Attacks

1 min


18 people have been killed in a terrorist attack on the Burkinabe capital of Ouagadougou.

The government of our northern neighbours revealed the number of casualties of the unfortunate attack which occurred late Sunday.

The BBC reports gunmen opened fire on customers seated outside a restaurant on Kwame Nkrumah Avenue, right at the heart of the capital. Security forces swiftly responded and managed to gun down the assailants.

This is just the latest in a string of terror attacks on Francophone West African nations within the past few years. Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, and Burkina Faso itself, have all suffered similar attacks.

The attacks often target establishments frequented by foreigners – such as the Aziz Istanbul restaurant in Ouagadougou – which was the site of this latest attack.
