In Burkina Faso, at least 132 people were killed and dozens more injured Friday as gunmen swept through a village near the northern border with Niger, burning homes and razing a market to the ground. It was among the deadliest assaults Burkina Faso has faced in years, as militants linked to al-Qaeda and the self-proclaimed Islamic State have stepped up attacks. The conflict has forced 1.2 million people in Burkina Faso to flee their homes.
