Another Sunday Church Attack in Burkina Faso Kills Six





This time, terrorists interrupted a Catholic Mass in Dablo, separated men from women and children, and murdered the priest and five worshipers.

 
For the second time since Easter, a church in northern Burkina Faso has suffered a terrorism attack during Sunday services.

This time, the target was a Catholic church in Dablo, where the priest and five worshipers were killed. This prompted a series of déjà vu headlines among global media outlets as it matches last month’s attack on an Assemblies of God church in Sirgadji, where the pastor and five worshipers were killed.

The assailiants again arrived on motorcycles and interrupted morning Mass. “They started firing as the congregation tried to flee,” said mayor Ousmane Zongo, reported Agence-France Presse (AFP).

They “ordered the women and children to clear the scene before executing six men, including the priest,” reported the Burkina Information Agency. They then set fire to the church and nearby buildings.

Burkina Faso suffered 136 violent incidents linked to jihadists in 2018, up from 24 in 2017 according to a report by the Africa Center for Strategic Studies. The Vatican’s news service noted in March how the killing and kidnapping of priests and other Catholic workers was on the rise in West Africa.

The nation’s Catholic bishops had asked congregants to spend the month of February praying for “peace and cohension,” reported Crux. The bishops stated at their January meeting that mounting violence was “revealing of a social thread that has been weakened, despite the legendary tradition of living together among all the social components of the Burkinabe nation.”

CT reported last month how the Assemblies of God was reeling from the “new turning point in terrorism” in the landocked West African nation.

“It’s not only the church of Sirgadji that has been attacked; all the values of tolerance, forgiveness, and love that have always led our country have been hurt,” said Henri Yé, president of the Federation of Evangelical Churches and Missions in Burkina Faso (FEME), in an April 30 statement. “The freedom of worship consecrated by our fundamental law [the Constitution] has been flouted.”

“In the face of blind hatred, let us ask God to give us the strength to spread love, which makes us the children of God,” stated Yé. “The unity of the body of Christ and of the whole nation must be preserved at all costs.”




[CT has queried church leaders for more information. This post will be updated.]
