Attack on a Catholic church in Burkina Faso with 6 dead

Six people were killed Sunday in an attack by armed men against a church during mass hours in northern Burkina Faso, a region usually hit by jihadist terrorism, official sources confirmed to EFE.

It is the second attack against a Christian temple in a period of only two weeks and the first against a Catholic church since the beginning of the jihadist wave in Burkina Faso in 2015.

The incident occurred on Sunday morning in the area of the town Dablo (near the Sahel region), as detailed to Efe Jean Paul Badoum, spokesman of the Ministry of Security of the country.

According to local media, the assailants also burned the premises.

On May 28 a Protestant church in the town of Silgadji (also in the north) became in turn the first of its kind to be a target of terrorism.

 

Since 2015 there has been an increase in terrorism

The rise of terrorism in Burkina Faso began in April 2015, when members of a group affiliated with Al Qaeda kidnapped a Romanian security guard in a Tambao manganese mine in the north of the country, and who is still missing.

Since then, the number of attacks, attributed to the local group, Ansarul Islam; to the jihadist coalition of the Sahel, the Support Group for Islam and the Muslims (GSIM), and the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (EIGS), has been increasing exponentially.

The most affected region by insecurity is the Sahel, located in the north and bordering Mali and Niger, where attacks and kidnappings of different jihadist groups take place.

Burkina Faso is one of the five countries that make up the Sahel G5, with Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Chad, group fighting jihadist terrorism in the region.
