More than 60 people died in violent clashes in northern Burkina Faso. Islamists who are seeking to gain control over the territory fuel the ethnic and inter-communal violence. Increasing lawlessness and violence is a gain for the Islamists who pit people against one another in order to gain militant influence. Pray for the government of Burkina Faso to have courage, strategy, and resources to actively regain control of its borderlands before the Islamists have full control like they do in neighboring Mali (The Bible, 1 Peter 3:14).
