Two teachers have been killed in Burkina Faso after being kidnapped, the ministry of education has confirmed.

They were kidnapped on 11 March and buried on Tuesday.

The goal of the kidnappers was to scare the teachers into abandoning their posts in the region, according to a government source.

Both teachers were working in the town of Djibo, where teachers are regularly threatened.

In three areas affected by an upsurge in violence by Islamist militant groups in Burkina Faso, 1,111 out of 2,869 schools have closed in recent months.

These regions are in the north of the country that borders Mali and Niger where jihadist militants have operated for several years.

Schools have been targeted by the groups, who are opposed to Western education.
