OUAGADOUGOU, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- An attack by unidentified gunmen Wednesday killed at least three people in the northern Loroum province in Burkina Faso, said the country's state news agency AIB.

The attack occurred at Bouna village, about 10 km east of Titao, the capital city of the province.

The African country has been marred by worsening security situation with attacks on a daily basis, which mostly happened in northern regions. The army has scaled up nationwide counter-terror operations.

Since 2015, terrorist attacks have killed over 500 people, including 200 soldiers, and displaced thousands in Burkina Faso.
