    The authorities in Burkina Faso say thirty-seven civilians were killed on Wednesday and more than 60 wounded in an attack by an unidentified gunman.

    They say that the gunmen targeted a convoy transporting workers of Canadian gold miner Semafo in eastern Burkina Faso.

    The company said earlier that the attack took place between Semafo’s Fada and Boungou mine sites, about 40 kilometers from Boungou.
