At least 14 people killed in Burkina Faso church attack

Unidentified gunmen shot dead at least 14 people attending a Sunday mass at a church in Burkina Faso. Several people were wounded in the attack which took place in Hantoukoura in the eastern region of the country. An Islamist insurgency in Burkina Faso this year has ignited ethnic and religious tensions. The majority of attacks have been attributed to the Ansar-ul-Islam and JNIM terror groups.
