Security Alert: Youga (Burkina Faso), Gold Mine Attack

Security Alert: Youga (Burkina Faso), Gold Mine Attack

Location: Youga, near Zabre, Centre-Est


Event: The U.S. Embassy has received credible information that a security guard working at the Youga mining site shot and killed a local miner on Wednesday, August 7. The local population is upset and has attacked the guards and the installation. We don’t have clarity on the type or magnitude of the attack at this time and advise all Americans to stay clear of the Youga Gold Mine site.
