The mayor of the town of Tera near Niger’s border with Burkina Faso said that “gunmen on motorbikes had forced a bus to stop.”
They then ordered the passengers out apparently to check their identities but then shot them.
‘Two other people were burnt alive in another vehicle.’
Groups linked to IS and al-Qaeda frequently carry out ‘deadly attacks’ in the region where Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali share borders.
