A retired teacher from Quebec, his wife and their two adult children have been identified as four of the victims of a deadly terror attack in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
Yves Carrier, his wife Gladys Chamberland, and their children Charlelie and Maude were among six Canadians killed in the attack, CTV News has confirmed.
The family was in Ouagadougou for a humanitarian mission when militants belonging to an al Qaeda affiliate stormed the Splendid Hotel at about 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
At least 28 people were killed during the bloody assault.
On Saturday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed that six of the victims were Canadian. The Quebec government also confirmed that all of the victims were from the province.
