Government declares 72-hour mourning period
|[와가두구( 부르키나파소)= AP/뉴시스] Refugees wait for lunch at the Pisila refugee camp near Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, West Africa, on the 13th of last month. The country has already displaced 500,000 people from their homes due to frequent jihad attacks and battles as militants from Mali’s extremist militants crossed the border with French attacks.|
According to the Associated Press, the Burkina Faso government said the tragedy occurred the night before when militants attacked the village of Solhan in the northeastern province of Yagha.
A government spokeswoman in Burkina Faso said: “Several markets and houses in the affected area on the Niger border were burned.”
Burkina Faso’s president, Locke Marc Christian Cabore, has denounced the attack as “barbaric”.
The Burkina Faso government has declared a 72-hour period of mourning.
No group has yet emerged to claim responsibility for the attack.
Countries such as Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger located near the central Sahel region of Africa are under attack by jihadists (Islamic jihadists) linked with al Qaeda and Islamic State (IS).
It is reported that more than 1.14 million people have lost their homes in Burkina Faso in two years.
