28 people have lost their lives on Friday in an attack on the military headquarters in Burkina Faso, 3 security sources, two in France and one in West Africa, told AFP.
Two of the sources said 28 people were killed and a third spoke of “around 30” dead in the attack in the capital Ouagadougou.
In a simultaneous attack, the French embassy was also targeted.
Burkinabe security sources gave a lower toll, saying “around 15” people were killed, while the army’s medical chief, Colonel Amado Kafando, said 75 others had been injured. It was unclear whether these figures applied to one or to both attacks.
