29 people killed in two attacks in Burkina Faso

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Burkina Faso’s government said at least 29 people were killed on Sunday in the troubled north of the country after a food convoy and a truck were attacked.

The government said in separate statements that a “terrorist” attack on the convoy killed 14 civilians, while the truck hit an improvised explosive device in Samatinga province, killing 15 people and injuring six.

“This tragedy comes at a time when significant security efforts are being made in this region.

“Military reinforcements sent”.

The latest violence follows an attack by gunmen in August that killed 24 soldiers in the deadliest attack so far in the West African war against Islamist militants.
