Blast kills 7 security personnel in Burkina Faso


Seven members of the security forces were killed early Tuesday after their vehicle struck a roadside bomb in eastern Burkina Faso, security sources said.

The fatalities were gendarmes and troops who had been sent to the town of Pama as reinforcements after a police station there came under attack, they said.

“Seven members of the defence and security forces were killed and another six were wounded, two of whom are in a precarious condition,” a government statement said of the incident not far from Fada N’Gourma, the main town in the Eastern Region.

There were no casualties in the Pama attack, although the police station was set ablaze.
