The West African nation Burkina Faso was under attack Friday night when terrorists raided the luxury hotel, Splendid.
It’s reported about 126 people were held hostage and 23 were killed in this horrible crime. A survivor recalled the tragedy saying “They started shoot everyone. We dropped to the ground as soon as anyone raised their heads they fired at them immediately. We had to play dead.”
According to reports, an Al Qaeda affiliate, AQIM, took responsibility for the mass attack.
Thankfully all life was not lost. French security forces were able to kill four of the attackers and free more than 126 hostages.
It’s said the attack was well planned and some of the attackers came to the hotel during the day to mingle with guests.
Prayers to the family and friends of the victims
