Mining services company Perenti Global has been caught up in a deadly terrorist attack on a convoy of buses in the West African nation of Burkina Faso. The attack happened around 40 kilometres from Semafo’s Bongou gold mine, with people on the buses including employees of Semafo, Perenti Global’s Africa Mining Services, and other contractors. The attack has left at least 37 dead and 60 wounded, with the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade saying at this stage it is not aware that any Australians were killed or wounded in the attack. Perenti has not disclosed how many AMS staff were on the buses in the convoy, which was being escorted by military police.
