Tens of rebels were reportedly “neutralised” in an aerial operation by government forces after the carnage on Saturday, according to sources.

Apollinaire Kyelem de Tambela, the prime minister of Burkina Faso, declared in front of the legislature that his country would never engage in negotiations with insurgents.
