AFP – At least 33 people were killed when gunmen opened fire on vegetable farmers in a terrorist-hit region of Burkina Faso, the governor said Saturday, as the country struggles to stem an insurgency.

rail union cancels strike

AP – A labor union representing more than 200,000 railway workers in Germany said Saturday that it was cancelling plans for a two-day strike after employers met one of its key demands.
