article imageAl-Qaeda affiliate claims Ouagadougou attack: Monitor group

By AFP     Jan 15, 2016 in World

An Al-Qaeda affiliate in Africa has claimed responsibility for Friday's attack on a restaurant in Ouagadougou in which a witness said several people were killed, according to a US-based jihadist monitoring group.

The "mujahideen brothers" of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb "broke into a restaurant of one of the biggest hotels in the capital of Burkina Faso, and are now entrenched and the clashes are continuing with the enemies of the religion," the SITE Intelligence Group quoted an Arabic-language AQIM message as saying.
