Gunmen killed six people, including a priest, on Sunday during Mass at a Catholic Church in Burkina Faso, officials said. The attack in the northern town of Dablo is the second major attack against Christians in the country in recent weeks. At least 20 gunmen stormed the church at about 9 a.m. and opened fire as congregants tried to flee, Dablo Mayor Ousmane Zongo told Agence France-Presse. The attackers burned down the church, along with some shops and a cafe, and looted a local health center. “There is an atmosphere of panic in the town,” Zongo said.
