It was a blood bath in Burkina Faso after gunmen killed six people which comprises of a priest and five parishioners during mass Sunday in an attack on a Catholic church.
The mayor of Dablo, Ousmane Zongo, said “towards 9:00am, during mass, armed individuals burst into the Catholic chruch,they started firing as the congregation tried to flee.”
The attackers between 20 and 30 according to a security source — managed to trap some of the worshippers, Zongo added. “They killed five of them. The priest, who was celebrating mass, was also killed, bringing the number of dead to six.”
The gunmen then set fire to the church, several shops and a small cafe before heading to the local health centre, which they looted, burning the chief nurse’s vehicle.
