Burkina: Death toll in Burkina jihadist massacre rises to 86

Ouagadougou: The death toll from a weekend attack in northern Burkina Faso has risen by seven, bringing the death toll to 86, authorities said on Wednesday.
The massacre in the village of Seytenga is the second worst in the history of Burkina’s insurgency, which began in 2015 when jihadists launched cross-border raids from Mali.
Attacks, mainly by groups associated with al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group, have since claimed thousands of lives, while nearly two million have fled their homes.
The previous toll of the Seytenga attack stood at 79.
Meanwhile, more than 600 people from Burkina fled to northern Togo in search of safety as a result of jihadist attacks in southeastern Burkina, Togo’s National Civil Protection Agency told AFP.
