At least 14 killed in church attack in Burkina Faso

M - At least 14 people including teenagers have been shot dead at a church in Burkina Faso during Sunday mass, Sky News reports.

The identities of the gunmen were not immediately clear and further details on the attack had yet to emerge.

When posting on Twitter, President Roch Marc Christian Kabore said Sunday that he condemned "the barbaric attack" in the city of Hantoukoura. The armed forces of Burkina Faso were taking care of the injured and searching the area, the government said in a statement.

Several other people were wounded in the attack which took place in the village of Foutouri in the Est region of the country.

Soldiers in the region were hunting down the assailants, who fled on scooters, the second source said.
