Six Canadians have been killed in the attacks in the West African nation of Burkina Faso.
The announcement came from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and there were apparently four jihadist attackers, who are linked to Al Qaida, that stormed a luxury hotel and were later killed by Burkina Faso and French security forces.
At least 23 of the victims in the attacks are from 18 different countries.
#BurkinaFaso attacks are horrible; our hearts go out to all the victims’ families, incl Canadians. We must be resolute and fight terror.
