Street Scene in Burkina Faso

Unknown gunmen opened fire on a church in eastern Burkina Faso Sunday, killing at least 14 people.

The attack on Protestant Church of Hantoukoura in eastern side of the country occurred during Sunday mass.

President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré confirmed the attack in a tweet later Sunday.

The identity of the gunmen is not yet clear but the area has come under attack over the past year from suspected jihadist groups with links to al Qaeda and Islamic State.

According to a local government statement, many people also sustained injuries in the attack.

Metro Nashville Police searching for escaped teens, spotted in Clarksville
Police say they are looking for four teenagers, two of them murder suspects, who escaped a Tennessee detention center. Brandon Caruthers, 17, and an unnamed 15-year-old boy are facing armed robbery and gun possession charges.

Soldiers in the region were hunting down the assailants, who fled on scooters, a security source said earlier.

Once deemed amongst the calmest countries in West Africa, deadly attacks linked to Islamic insurgents have worsened in Burkina Faso since 2015.

An ambush on a convoy transporting employees of a Canadian mining company in eastern Burkina Faso earlier this month killed 37 people, the deadliest attack in almost five years of jihadist violence.

Christians and others had lived peacefully in the Muslim majority country until a series of attacks blamed on jihadists spilled over from neighboring Mali past year, leaving hundreds dead.
