BREAKING: A Dozen People Dead After Terrifying Terrorist Attack

So far there have been reports that there are at least 12 people dead from Islamic terrorist attack at a resort, in a region that has been plagued with attacks in recent months. The violence is becoming worse and far more frequent attacks have been taking place…things are looking really grim for this region of the world.

Unidentified assailants fired on guests at the Etoile du Sud hotel in the town of Grand Bassam, about 40km (25 miles) east of the commercial capital Abidjan.
The hotel is popular with both local people and foreigners.

Ivory Coast was seen as a model of stability in West Africa until a civil war erupted in 2002.

The conflict pitted the mainly Muslim north against the largely Christian south. Since then, peace deals have alternated with renewed violence.
The region has been plagued by attacks from ISIS-affiliated groups

BBC regional reporter Maud Jullien says Ivory Coast has been identified as one of several countries in West Africa at risk of being targeted by Islamist militants.
Luxury hotels in countries further north have already been targeted by such groups.

In June 2015, 38 people – most of them British tourists – were shot dead in the Tunisian resort of Sousse, in an attack claimed by the self-styled Islamic State (IS).

You can’t fight terrorists with mercy…you just can’t.
