Affected Countries: burkina-faso;
Fifteen civilians were killed in northern Burkina Faso over the weekend, security and local sources said Monday, in the latest deadly attack as the impoverished West African country battles a jihadist revolt.
“The lifeless bodies of 11 people were found on Sunday morning on the road from Pobe-Mengao to Petelbongo… probably the bodies of those abducted the day before in Pobe-Mengao by an armed terrorist group,” a security source said.
Four more bodies were found later, said a local source in the northern town of Djibo, 25 kilometres (15 miles) away from Pobe-Mengao.
