The UAE has strongly condemned a terrorist attack on a church in Burkina Faso. The attack claimed 24 lives while injuring many.
A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, on Wednesday, expressed UAE's strong condemnation of such criminal acts and the permanent rejection of all forms of violence and terrorism aimed at destabilising security and stability - as it is incompatible with religious and human values and principles.
The Ministry condoled with the families of the victims and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
At least 24 people, including a church pastor, were killed by gunmen on Sunday in Burkina Faso, according to reports.
Local official said the attack targeted a church in a village to the north of the country. ??
