A Spanish Armed Forces airplane carrying the bodies of two Spanish journalists and an Irish conservationist who were killed in an ambush in Burkina Faso this week landed at an airbase just outside Madrid on Friday morning.

The Spanish journalists David Beriain and Roberto Fraile were in the country filming a documentary on poaching in the Sahel region, while Rory Young was accompanying them as the co-founder of anti-poaching organization Chengeta Wildlife. EFE
