American Missionary Among the Dead in Burkina Faso Siege

Michael James Riddering, who moved from Florida, worked at the Les Ailes de Refuge Orphanage, about 70 miles from Ouagadougou.

CHR Comment: The attack included a Cappuccino Café where missionaries had gathered for a meeting. It appears that the missionaries were not intended as targets but where caught up in the attack unintentionally.
