An attack on a mosque in eastern Burkina Faso has killed dozens of people, local and security sources told AFP on Monday.

“Armed individuals attacked a mosque in Natiaboani on Sunday around 5:00 am, resulting in several dozen being killed,” a security source said.

“The victims were all Muslims, most of them men” who had come for the morning prayer, a local resident said. It happened on the same day as at least 15 civilians were killed in an attack on a Catholic church during Sunday mass in the north of the country.
