Gunmen have killed twenty-four people, including a pastor, in an attack on a church during Sunday mass in northwestern Burkina Faso.
Reuters reports that four security sources revealed that it is still unclear which group carried out the attack.
The government confirmed the deaths though in a statement but refrained from stating where the attack took place.
Burkina Faso continues to witness such deadly attacks carried out by militant groups.
In January this year Burkina Faso declared two days of national mourning after at least 36 civilians were killed by jihadists in northern part of the country.
The terrorists killed 32 civilians when they attacked and burned a market in Nagraogo village before killing four more people in Alamou village.
The wave of jihadist attacks in Burkina Faso, as well as neighboring Mali and Niger has increased in recent times.
According to the UN, around 4,000 people were killed in jihadist attacks in the three Sahel countries last year.
