On Monday, gunmen attacked an anti-poacher patrol in the province of Compienga, killing three foreigners: Spanish journalists who were filming the documentary, David Beriain and Roberto Fraile, and Irish citizen Rory Young. In addition, the body of a Burkina Faso soldier was found.
According to the source, the serviceman managed to escape by hiding in the forest. The Swiss journalist escaped and has already arrived in the capital, Ouagadougou.
On Tuesday, Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said that two Spanish journalists who were caught in an ambush most likely died.
