This morning Ouagadougou was targeted by terrorists. The Burkinabé people, the Artist who are staying at Operndorf Afrika right now, and our friends and colleagues in Ouagadougou are all in a state of shock. The assault is an attack on a peaceful country, a young democracy and also on the concept of liberty and freedom of thought and the equality of different religions – values of which we still believe to be more than worthy of support. We at Operndorf and all the people who work in the village refuse to be intimidated and will continue to support each other.

We would like to express our condolences to the relatives of the victims.
