Boko Haram

Four villages raided, dozens killed

3 Jun, 2014

Dozens of villagers are murdered, and hundreds of homes destroyed in Boko Haram raids on four villages in the northeastern Borno state of Nigeria. Churches, mosques, and homes are set afire, and residents attacked with Kalashnikovs and rocket propelled grenades. Many survivors flee to Cameroon. Peter Biye, a lawmaker and member of the Nigerian lower parliament comments:

We are still trying to compile a toll of the dead as people on the ground are still counting the number of casualties.
