OUAGADOUGOU (Reuters) - Unidentified gunmen killed three Burkinabe soldiers and two civilians on Wednesday, a military source said, in the latest sign that instability in Mali is spreading to its southern neighbor.
Burkina Faso’s defense ministry says heavily armed assailants have attacked a military position in the north near the Mali border, killing three soldiers and two civilians.
United Nations - Police Superintendent Yvette Boni Zombre from Burkina Faso received the International Female Police Peacekeeper Award for her service and achievements in the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA). Superintendent Zombre is the first police officer from Burkina Faso to receive the International Female Police Peacekeeper Award, which she was presented on Sunday, 9 October, at the International Association of Women Police conference in Barcelona, Spain. The award has been bestowed annually since 2011 to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of a female police officer serving the United Nations. Today, 1,251 female police officers from 65 countries serve as United Nations police. This is the result of a Global Effort initiative with member states that commenced in 2009 to recruit more women into the United Nations police. As a result, the number of female officers increased from about 900 (seven percent of 12,000 police) in 2009 to 1,291 officers (ten percent of 13,000) as of September 2016. Yet more remains to be done. The United Nations Police Division continues to work with member states, advocating for states to contribute more female police officers. Concurrently, the United Nations continues to reach out to professional police association. This week, 70 female police officers from 26 countries and peacekeeping operations around the world are participating in the International Association of Women Police Conference.

LONDON, Oct 7 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Girls between the ages of five and 14 are spending 40 percent more time on unpaid domestic chores than boys their age, missing out on chances to learn and enjoy their childhood, according to a report on Friday ahead of International Day of the Girl. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said girls are spending 160 million more hours a day on household work such as cooking, cleaning, looking after family members and collecting water and firewood. Girls in South Asia, the Middle East and parts of Africa make up the bulk of the report, which also found that girls aged 10 to 14 took on the most disproportionate burden of chores in Burkina Faso, Yemen and Somalia. “The overburden of unpaid household work begins in early childhood and intensifies as girls reach adolescence,” said UNICEF’s Principal Gender Advisor Anju Malhotra. “As a result, girls sacrifice important opportunities to learn, grow, and just enjoy their childhood. This unequal distribution of labour among children also perpetuates gender stereotypes and the double-burden on women and girls across generations.” Analysts said gender inequality continued to pose a major challenge to meeting the U.N.’s new set of global goals agreed last year to end extreme poverty and address the lack of opportunities and violence against women by 2030. International Day of the Girl, on Oct. 11, was set up by the United Nations in 2011 to recognise the rights of the 1.1 billion girls around the world and the challenges they face. Researchers said addressing issues such as violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation and education as well as empowering girls to reach their potential was not only beneficiary for girls, but key for economic growth, peace and poverty reduction. A report by the children’s charity Plan International earlier this week warned millions of girls would remain at risk until there were better statistics and data to track issues such as sexual violence against girls and school attendance.
