Eleven soldiers have been killed and some 50 civilians are missing after Islamist militants attacked a 150-vehicle military-escorted convoy taking supplies to a town in Burkina Faso on Monday, the government said on Tuesday. The assault took place in Soum province, where terrorists linked to al-Qaeda and the ISIL (ISIS) have been escalating attacks and seizing territory since 2015.
