The attack is the latest in a series of atrocities blamed on Islamist terrorist groups linked to al-Qaida and the Islamic State reportedly active in the Sahel region, which have taken over long strips of land and contributed to the displacement of millions of people in the region.

According to Father Sawadogo, 12 worshippers were killed at the scene of the attack while three succumbed to their injuries while receiving treatment.
