OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — A local councilman says at least 13 people have died after their truck hit an improvised explosive device after entering Mali from northern Burkina Faso. Moumouni Tamboura, who works in Djibo village in Burkina Faso, said Thursday the dead were traders who leave Burkina Faso every Thursday for a weekly market in Mali.
