In the wake of the recent event in eastern Burkina Faso, the importance of international intelligence is more crucial than ever.
Earlier this week, 37 civilians were killed and over 60 wounded by gunmen who ambushed the Montreal-based mining company, Semafo, convoy just 40 kms from the mine site in West Africa.
“The attack is the deadliest in recent years as the military struggles to contain Islamist violence that has overrun parts of Burkina Faso, located in West Africa. Semafo tightened security last year following armed incidents near two of its mines in the country.”
