A Christian five-year-old boy was killed by some Balaclava-wearing men despite begging for his life in the Grand Bassam beach attack in Cote’d Ivoire on Sunday. Another kid was spared because he was able to recite the holy Qua’ran, DailyMail reported. The attackers carrying AK-47 rifles and hand grenades killed 16 people, including four Europeans, before they were gunned down by government troops. ‘They killed a child despite him kneeling down and begging. They shot a woman in the chest. They’ve killed innocent people,’ a survivor was quoted as saying.
