Gunmen killed at least 100 people in a northern Burkina Faso village, the government said Saturday, in what was the country’s deadliest attack in years. The attack took place Friday evening in Solhan village, in the Sahel’s Yagha province, government spokesperson Ousseni Tamboura said in a statement blaming militants. The local market and several homes were also burned down in the area toward the border of Niger, he said. Burkina Faso President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré called the attack “barbaric.”
