August 14, 2017: At least 17 people have been killed and 8 wounded in a terrorist attacked in the capital of Burkina Faso, West African Country. As witnesses’ report, three gunman opened fire on customers seated outside a restaurant.

Police officials suspected the attackers were might be of Islamic extremist group. But there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the violence on Sunday, which continued into the early hours of Monday with another heavy exchange of gunfire overheard by witnesses.

Communication Minister Remis Dandjinou said that security forces killed three attackers, but some people are still trapped in the building.

The victims came from several different nationalities, Dandjinou said, but at least one of the dead was a French national.

A paramedic told Agence France-Presse that one of the victims was Turkish. “We evacuated 11 people but one of them, a Turk, died on arriving at hospital,” the paramedic said, declining to be named.

Police evacuated civilians from the area before launching the counter-assault, with the heavy exchange of fire becoming more sporadic as the operation went on.
