The government of Burkina Faso has offered a bounty of up to $293,000 (£233,700) for 20 “wanted terrorists”.
The security ministry published on its Facebook page on Thursday the list of the 20 individuals “actively wanted for their involvement or complicity in planning or carrying out terrorist acts” in the Sahel country.
According to French public broadcaster RFI, several people on the list were already included in a previous notice published a year ago by the army.
An eight-year Islamist insurgency has killed more than 14,000 people and displaced over two million in Burkina Faso.
This announcement came days after gunmen killed more than 20 people in attacks, most of them security forces.
The insurgency has been described as the world’s most neglected displacement crisis by the Norwegian Refugee Council.
