Burkinabe president Roch March Kabore has called on all citizens – within and outside the country to join hands in the fight against terrorism – a common national security threat.

His call, via a Twitter post, comes a day after a militant attack killed 37 people in a convoy of a mining fIrm...

Wednesday’s attack happened in eastern Burkina Faso, about 25 miles (40 kilometres) from the Boungou mine, which is owned Canada’s Semafo company. The gunmen attacked a convoy of five buses carrying mine employees that was accompanied by a military escort.

The ambush underscores the deteriorating security situation in Burkina Faso, which observers say has increasingly become a refuge for jihadists from neighbouring Mali and Niger.

Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou, was hit by extremist violence for the first time in January 2016. At least 30 people were killed after the militants targeted a cafe popular with foreigners. Then in August 2017, 18 people were killed in an attack on a Turkish restaurant in the capital.

Jihadists have attacked churches across the north but also have focused on foreign business interests. In January, a Canadian man was kidnapped during a night raid on a mining site near the Niger border. His bullet-riddled body was found a day later.
