A local official in Northern Burkina Faso has said that at least 18 people were killed and one seriously wounded in an attack this, week that also caused massive displacement.
The Governor of Seno Province located in the conflict-hit Sahel Region, Salfo Kabore said unidentified gunmen carried out the attack in Yathakou Village.
Sources say many local residents have fled the area while the wounded person was taken to the hospital in the Capital, Ouagadougou.
The attack happened the same day that two Spanish Journalists and an Irish conservationist were killed and a Burkinabe Soldier went missing when their anti-Poaching Patrol was ambushed by rebels in the Country’s east.
