Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, May 15, 2019 / 23:00 pm
Just one day after six Catholics were murdered by gunmen in Burkina Faso, four more Catholics were shot and killed in the northwest African country.
On Monday, unknown gunmen interrupted a religious procession in a village near Kongoussi, a northwest city of the Bam Province. After releasing the children, the assailants killed four adult worshipers and burned a Marian statue, according to reports.
"We will not be bogged down by the religious attacks," said Cardinal Philippe Ouédraogo, archbishop of Ougadougou, CNN reported.
The previous day, a group of gunmen attacked a Catholic church in Dablo, located in a nearby province. They shot and killed five men, including a priest, during Mass.
