After spraying bullets into the congregation during the Sunday service, the assailants fled on motorbikes. A security source said that armed individuals carried out the attack, ‘executing the faithful including the pastor and children’. In a statement, the government also said that Burkina Faso’s armed forces were caring for the wounded and searching the area.
