Against the backdrop of the kidnapping of some fifty women in the north of Burkina Faso, the president of the transition, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, has expressed his concern about new threats by terrorists against civilians.

Captain Ibrahim Traoré added, during a meeting at the University of Ouagadougou with students from all over the country, that the military men are determined to confront these terrorists who are killing innocent people.

Concerning the women kidnapped last Thursday and Friday in the north and west of the town of Arbinda (north), the authorities of the region announced that ground and air searches are underway to locate them.

In this context, the Burkinabe general command requested on Tuesday evening that trucks with drivers be made available to the army to ensure the transport of basic necessities to the population living in areas of high-security challenge.

It should be recalled that Captain Traore came to power at the end of September in a coup, and promised to put an end to the jihadist violence that has threatened civilians and the military for years.
