14 people killed in gun attack at church in Burkina Faso

At least 10 killed in attack on church in Burkina Faso

The president of the nation of Burkina Faso, in West Africa, confirmed that 14 people died in an attack on a Protestant church in the east of the country.

The victims were attending a service at a Protestant church in the town of Hantoukoura, one of the sources told AFP, putting the death toll at "more than 10". The armed forces of Burkina Faso were taking care of the injured and searching the area, the government said in a statement.

The identities of the gunmen were not immediately clear and further details on the attack had yet to emerge.

An Islamist insurgency in Burkina Faso this year has ignited ethnic and religious tensions, leaving large parts of the country ungovernable, especially in northern areas bordering Mali.

Soldiers are hunting for the attackers who fled on motor scooters after gunning down worshipers during a Sunday mass.

The attack came less than two months after 37 people were killed in an attack on a mining company, with additional 60 people believed wounded.

Once deemed amongst the calmest countries in West Africa, deadly attacks linked to Islamic insurgents have worsened in Burkina Faso since 2015.

The attack took place near the West African country's border with Niger, a troubled area where numerous extremist groups are now active.
