Prayer for Burkina Faso: Upholding Human Rights and Peace amidst Conflict

27 Aprile 2024

We pray for the people in Burkina Faso. According to Human Rights Watch, there was a military campaign against civilians accused of links to armed groups. The military forces are accused of executing 223 civilians, including at least 56 children, from the villages of Nondin and Soro in February 2024. Reports were compiled from interviews conducted with survivors and the geolocation of eight mass graves. This is not the first country where civilians have been caught in the middle of the fights between armed groups and security forces.
