The Christian Post – Dozens of armed gunmen killed at least 19 and injured 13 more in northern Burkina Faso Sunday in what a local government official told AFP on the condition of anonymity was an attack that occurred between 3 and 5 p.m.
They found 19 bodies so far, the official said, and a search was underway to find others who were killed. The source added that the gunmen stopped three vehicles in the town of Arbinda hours before the gunmen attacked, and set them on fire. The official said one of the drivers was killed.
The killing in Arbinda comes as armed groups spread across the Shael region and committed atrocities in Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso.
