Armed men stormed a mosque in the volatile north of Burkina Faso as worshippers were at prayer, killing 16 people and sending residents fleeing, security sources and locals said on Saturday. Meanwhile, four civilians have also been killed in the latest attack in the volatile northern region of Burkina Faso, security sources told the news agency yesterday. Saturday’s attack in Samboulga, in the northern province of Lorum, comes after armed men stormed a mosque in the town of Salmossi killing 16 on Friday, underscoring the difficulties faced by the country in its battle against jihadists. “Four people were killed Saturday night by armed individuals in Samboulga,” one security source told AFP. The attack on the Grand Mosque in the town of Salmossi on Friday evening underscores the difficulties faced by the country in its battle against jihadists. One source said 13 people died on the spot and three succumbed to their injuries later. Two of the wounded are in critical condition. “Since this morning, people have started to flee the area,” one resident from the nearby town of Gorom-Gorom said.
