US condemns attacks in Burkina Faso

WASHINGTON, - The White House on Sunday said the United States "condemns in the strongest terms" the recent attacks in Burkina Faso, and mourns for those killed, including American citizen Michael Riddering.
"Acts of terrorism will not stop efforts by brave Americans and others from around the world who travel far and wide to support governments, civil society groups, and others working to strengthen democracy, improve healthcare, and increase economic opportunities for all," said White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price.
In a statement, Price said the United States will remain a partner of the government of Burkina Faso in fighting terrorist groups.
