Burkina Faso attack: Soldiers arrested in investigation

Many in Ouagadougou are still in mourning after the attacks last week claimed by a Sahel rebel group, but others have been shocked by the revelations that their attackers were not foreigners.

Burkina Faso is mourning the victims of last week’s attacks on its military headquarters and the French embassy.

An investigation into the violence has resulted in more arrests, including soldiers.

News that the arrested men are not foreigners, but a mix of active and former soldiers, surprised many in Burkina Faso, but not all.
