Residents had reported the attack to local media earlier this week, but government officials only confirmed the incident early on Wednesday morning.

The identity of the assailants and their affiliation remained unknown on Wednesday.

The north of Burkina Faso, which borders on Mali and Niger, serves as a refuge for Islamist extremists who regularly attack the civilian population.

Bukina Faso, a country of roughly 20 million people, belongs to the world’s ten poorest nations, according to the United Nations. (dpa/NAN)
