At least 14 dead in Burkina Faso church attack

Burkina Faso has been struggling with growing unrest attributed to groups linked to al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group

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.

Local media reported that the victims were attending a service at a church in Hantoukoura, in the eastern part of the country.

Around 10 "heavily armed individuals" carried out the attack in the village near the border with Niger, "executing the faithful including the pastor and children", the source said.

"This attack unfortunately left 14 dead and many wounded", it said.

The statement said soldiers in the region launched operations against the attackers.

Most of the violence is attributed to jihadists affiliated with Al-Qaeda or the Islamic State group, with around 500,000 people internally displaced by attacks, according to the UN.

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.

Jihadist attacks have increased in Burkina Faso since 2015, forcing thousands of schools to close down.

In May, gunmen stormed a Catholic church in Dablo, a rural community about 100 kilometres north of the town of Kaya in the country's north-east, killing six people.
