Burkina Faso held a mass burial on Tuesday after an attack on a security post. The event comes amid an Internet shutdown and ongoing protests that saw a French envoy blocked for several days.
Burkina Faso on Tuesday buried many of the 49 military police officers killed in a recent strike on a security outpost, even as the government reported the killing of around 20 more military police and civilians in a separate attack.
The health post is now completely destroyed and can no longer treat patients. The violence continues to increase daily in Burkina Faso, trapping the Burkinabe people a little more each day, which is unacceptable.
