Attack Near Canadian Mine in Burkina Faso Kills 38 People

Attack Near Canadian Mine in Burkina Faso Kills 38 People(Bloomberg) — Scores of people are still missing after Wednesday’s attack near a Canadian-owned mine in Burkina Faso in which 38 people were killed, the worst such incident in the West African nation struggling to contain an Islamist insurgency.The death toll was 38, Defense Minister Cherif Moumouna Sy said Friday following a visit to the region. A further 63 people were injured, with the most severely wounded brought to the capital, Ouagadougou, Sy told Radiodiffusion Television du Burkina. Government spokesman Remy Fulgance Dandjinou said about 40 people remained unaccounted for.“Our troops are on the ground because we also have some elements that are missing, some mine workers that we are looking for,” Sy said.Unidentified gunmen attacked a convoy under military escort transporting workers of Canadian gold miner Semafo Inc. about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the company’s Boungou mine in the eastern Est region. While the mine was unaffected, operations were suspended out of respect for the victims, Semafo said.Read more: Canadian Miner Targeted in Burkina Faso Attack; 38 KilledThe attack comes as several West African countries are battling Islamist insurgents who are increasingly disrupting business and forcing governments to abandon large swathes of territory. The raids have spread from Sahel countries such as Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso toward the borders with coastal nations, including Ghana and Ivory Coast.West African leaders expressed solidarity with Burkina Faso and President Roch Marc Christian Kabore following the attack. “No country is spared from terrorism,” Senegal President Macky Sall said during a stopover in Ouagadougou following a meeting with the West African regional bloc in Niger’s capital Niamey on Friday. “This time it was workers going to their office who were attacked.”Semafo’s stock fell 4.9% in Toronto on Thursday and extended its decline by 4.8% on Friday. Shares in Australia’s Perenti Global dropped 12% after the Perth-based mining contractor said 19 members of its workforce were killed in the incident. The Perth-based mining-service provider also suspended operations.(Adds Senegal president’s comment in 7th paragraph.)\–With assistance from Katarina Hoije.To contact the reporter on this story: Simon Gongo in Ouagadougou at sgongo@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Andre Janse van Vuuren at ajansevanvuu@bloomberg.net, Hilton Shone, Jacqueline MackenzieFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Zimbabwe Rejects U.S. Claim That Diamond Mine Uses Forced Labor

Zimbabwe Rejects U.S. Claim That Diamond Mine Uses Forced Labor(Bloomberg) — Zimbabwe accused the U.S. of ignorance after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced it’s blocking rough diamond imports from the Marange fields because they were produced with forced labor. “It’s unfortunate that the U.S. authorities have been misinformed or misled to believe that Zimbabwe is mining diamonds through forced labor,” government spokesman Nick Mangwana said Tuesday by text message. “As a government we have a very strong revulsion towards any form of slavery or servitude. To even suggest that Zimbabwe has some form of corporate forced labor is either mischievous or simply ignorant.”Imports from Zimbabwe are not the only ones targeted by the ban. The U.S. agency listed a range of products earlier Tuesday, from garments from China to gold from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
