Overnight on 28-29 March 2021, suspected Islamist militants launched attacks on two security outposts near Côte d’Ivoire’s border with Burkina Faso. According to the military, approximately 60 gunmen perpetrated the attack in the town of Kafolo, killing two soldiers and injuring four others. The military reportedly engaged the militants and repelled them, killing at least three assailants. Meanwhile, an unspecified number of assailants launched an additional attack on the outpost in Kologobo, killing a police officer. While no group has thus far claimed responsibility, authorities suspect that Burkina Faso-based Islamist extremists perpetrated both attacks.
