Gunman Attack On Burkina Faso Cafe, 3 Dead


Burkina Faso: Soldiers launched an operation against suspected terrorists in Burkina Faso on Sunday after gunmen attacked a cafe in the capital Ouagadougou.

At least two people including one foreigner were wounded in the attack, the journalist said. Witnesses said that three armed men arrived in a 4×4 at around 9:30 pm and opened fire on customers seated outside the cafe.

Police and army arrived at the scene and sporadic gunfire could be heard into the night, the journalist said. Burkina Faso, a poor landlocked nation bordering Mali and Niger, has seen a string of attacks claimed by terrorist groups in recent years.

By far the worst was an assault on a hotel and nearby cafe in central Ouagadougou in January 2016 that killed 30 people including several foreigners.
