Four Burkina Faso soldiers were Killed by Gunmen and five others injured near the Malian border on Monday, a day after 10 civilians were killed nearby in a separate attack.

Jihadist groups, already a major security headache for neighboring Mali and Niger, have rapidly spread into Burkina Faso’s remote north in the past two months, killing soldiers and civilians in a spate of attacks.

The soldiers killed on Monday’s assault belonged to an anti-terrorism unit operating in the Nassoumbou area in northern Burkina Faso, the army said in a statement.



The same unit lost 12 soldiers in December 2016 in an attack claimed by Ansarul Islam, an al Qaeda-linked insurgent group.

A local cow herder who witnessed the attack declined to be named for fear of reprisals said several gunmen had arrived on motorbikes and started shooting apparently at random.

“France… is concerned about the increase in attacks against security forces and civilian populations of the country,” it said in a statement.

Turkey: Group calls for immediate action against Femicide

Published

on

Emine Dirican, a beautician from Istanbul, tried to be a good wife. But her husband hated that she worked, that she socialized, even that she wanted to leave the house sometimes without him.

She tried to reason with him. He lashed out.

“One time, he tied me — my hands, my legs from the back, like you do to animals,” recalls Dirican, shuddering. “He beat me with a belt and said, ‘You’re going to listen to me, you’re going to obey whatever I say to you.’ “

She left him and moved in with her parents. In January, he showed up, full of remorse and insisting he had changed. She let him in.

In her mother’s kitchen, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her to the floor and pulled out a gun.

“He shot me,” she says. “Then he went back to my mom and he pulled the trigger again, but the gun was stuck. So he hit her head with the back of the gun.”

Her father, who was in another room in the house, heard the gunshots and ran over. Dirican almost bled to death after a bullet ripped through a main artery in one of her legs.

“I was telling my father, ‘Daddy, please, I don’t want to die.’ “

Femicide — killing women because of their gender — is a longstanding issue in Turkey. Nearly 300 women have been killed so far this year, according to the Istanbul-based advocacy group We Will Stop Femicide, which has been tracking gender-related deaths since Turkish authorities stopped doing so in 2009.
