As we’ve here at thegoldwater.com told you earlier, a well organized terrorist attack from 3 fronts was launched at Ouagadougou, the capital of the former French colony of Burkina Faso.

Targets that were raided by the Islamic Extremists were the headquarters of the army and the French embassy where most people died.

The French army sent in reinforcements to help the African nations’ soldiers fight off the large group of terrorists who attacked them.

French President Emmanuel Macron will brief the people of France later on these events as a lot of his countrymen reside in Burkina Faso.

The French Prime Minister, Mr. Edouard Philippe clearly labeled it as "a terrorist attack."

“This was a terrorist attack and the French embassy was among the targets.”

Five of the terrorist gunmen jumped out of a pickup truck in the city center, shouted “Allahu Akhbar” and started shooting at passers-by.

After they had sprayed the street with bullets, they ran towards their main target, the French embassy.

Now let's not jump to conclusions, there's no proof this wasn't the IRA.
