Attack on French embassy and military HQ in Burkina Faso

Today on the 2nd of March armed insurgents attacked both the French embassy and military headquarters in the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou. Fourteen deaths have been reported thus far; seven assailants and as many security personel. Six people were also injured, including 2 civilians. The brazen attack is believed to be a response to Emmanuel Macron's decision to urge local governments in France's former colonies to fight local ISIS chapters more effectively.
