ouagadougou - The Canadian who was abducted by strangers in Burkina Faso in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday has been found dead. That is what the Burkinese Ministry of Security says. The kidnapping did not take place...

The area where the Canadian Kirk Woodman was abducted is increasingly being threatened by jihadists. The victim worked in the mining industry and had work experience in West Africa. Whether he was for work in Burkina Faso is unclear.

The risk of kidnapping in the border area with Niger and Mali is particularly high. In December also a Canadian and an Italian disappeared in the southwest of Burkina Faso.
