Iran condemns terrorist attack in Burkina Faso

Khatibzadeh extended condolences to the government and people of Burkina Faso and the families of the victims.

NOURNEWS- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned a terrorist attack in the African country of Burkina Faso which resulted in death of tens of people.

Khatibzadeh extended condolences to the government and people of Burkina Faso and the families of the victims.

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman also sympathized with the bereaved families of the victims of the terrorist attack. 

Khatibzadeh, meantime, voiced Iran's readiness to cooperate with Burkina Faso.

At least 32 people, including 28 military police officers and four civilians, were killed in an attack on a gendarmerie post in northern Burkina Faso, the government said on Monday, raising its earlier death toll of 20.

The government's statement said the toll was provisional as of Monday afternoon. The attack is the deadliest suffered by Burkina Faso troops since an insurgency by Takfiri militants took off in 2017.

President Roch Kabore decreed three days of national mourning for the victims of the attack, which took place on Sunday morning near a gold mine in Inata and came two days after another raid in the area killed seven police.

The government said it was carried out by unidentified armed men. Burkinabe forces and civilians are regularly targeted by militants linked to al-Qaeda and the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, particularly near the borders with Mali and Niger.
