KIGALI, Rwanda (AA) - Ten police officers were killed and three others injured in Burkina Faso when militants attacked the northern Sebba city, the local media reported on Sunday.

“The assailants disguised in Burkina Faso Armed Forces uniform initially sabotaged communications facilities. They attacked a police station and military post simultaneously. But it was the central police station that was the main target of the attack,” a police source told local media.

According to the source, the assailants blocked various entrances to the city and damaged significant property.

The militants took away military equipment, including an armored vehicle, the media report said.
