Iran saddened by terror attack that killed scores in Burkina Faso

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh has expressed sympathy towards Burkina Faso on the death of several people in a terrorist attack.

In a message released on Tuesday, Khatibzadeh offered his condolences to the government and people of Burkina Faso and the families of the victims, expressing 'sympathy and deep sorrow' over the death of several people in the terrorist attack that took place on Monday.

Khatibzadeh condemned any terrorist act, announcing Iran's readiness to cooperate with Burkina Faso and other friendly countries in West Africa and convey experiences on fighting against terrorism.

At least 32 people, including 28 military police officers and four civilians, were killed in an attack on a gendarmerie post in northern Burkina Faso, the government said on Monday, raising its earlier death toll of 20.

The attack is the deadliest suffered by Burkina Faso troops since an insurgency by Takfiri militants took off in 2017.
