Burkina Faso said 39 people were killed in an attack by terrorists on the northern village of Silgadji that appears to mark a shift from raids on mainly military targets to the execution of civilians, APA reports citing Bloomberg.

Security forces are helping residents to bury the victims after the “cowardly and barbaric” attack on Saturday, in Soum province, the government said in a statement Tuesday. The death toll is the highest of any attack in the West African nation this year.
