"We shall reinforce our collaboration with sub-regional countries as well as with our international partners to jointly fight terrorism," Ouattara reiterated.

He urged his counterparts not to be fearful, noting that "terrorism should be fought mercilessly."

On Sunday afternoon, three hotels mostly frequented by Westerners, situated in the Grand Bassam seaside resort, were attacked by terrorists.
