In Burkina Faso, several graves have been desecrated in a village in the Sahel region by a mining company specializing in gold, Wat Fm announced.

In order to frighten a new road that could lead to its mining site, a mining company desecrated the graves in a cemetery located in the Sahel region: “They razed our cemetery” without prior consultation and the opinion of any local authority”, several sources indicated.

Seized by the local authorities, the company acknowledged that it had acted without consultation or reasoned information with the inhabitants of the locality but refused to submit to the compensation proposals made by them. An arm wrestling match is reportedly underway between the local authorities and the company according to details from a source contacted by Wat Fm.
