The Sisters said: “We are currently living in a climate of permanent insecurity.
“Above all, our Sisters in the communities in the north of the country are witnessing daily clashes.
“In Bam [northern Burkina Faso], the terrorists were just two miles away from the community.”
Stressing that the violence was indiscriminate, the Sisters said: “Everyone is in their sights – Catholics are killed, animists are killed, Muslims are killed, Protestants are killed.”
Last month, 14 people – mainly children and teenagers – were killed during a Sunday service at a Protestant church in Fada N’Gourma, near the border with Niger.
