The attack in the town of Ouahigouya occurred on Monday, a day after a Catholic Priest and five parishioners were shot dead in Dablo Town, also in Northern Burkina Faso.

A spokesman for the Ouagadougou Cathedral, Paul Ouedraogo, says worshipers were moving through Ouahigouya when “a group of terrorists intercepted the procession, killing four worshipers and burning the statue.

In an address to Bishops in Burkina Faso’s capital, Paul Ouedraogo said a priest in neighboring Niger had also been shot and wounded in an attack on Monday.
