A suspected key figure in the deadly Burkina Faso attacks has been arrested, a government source said Sunday, adding that there were suspicions of complicity by the army. Saying the suspect could be “one of the brains” behind the attacks, the source told AFP there were “very strong suspicions” that “army infiltrators” had passed information to the assailants for the coordinated attacks in the capital Ouagadougou Friday claimed by GSIM, a jihadist group allied to al-Qaeda. Two of the trio managed to flee the scene but the third was arrested and gunned down after attempting to seize the weapon of a guard, according to government and security sources.
