According to the report, 10 worshipers were killed after gunmen stormed a mosque in the Tilabari area on the Niger border.
“The recently reported attack took place on Monday in a village called Abankur in the border area between Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso,” an official in Banbango told AFP.
“Attackers on motorcycles stormed a mosque during Maghrib prayers and opened fire on worshipers,” he added.
According to another resident of the village, one person was injured in the deadly attack.
It is worth mentioning that since the beginning of this year, the number of attacks by unknown gunmen on the Tilabari area has increased significantly.
Most of these armed attacks are carried out in these areas with the support of ISIS and al-Qaeda.
