Domenica scorsa diversi miliziani di Boko Haram hanno rapito e ucciso un numero imprecisato di persone nello stato del Borno, in Nigeria


Boko Haram Islamists kidnapped scores of people from fishing communities in Nigeria‘s extreme northeast, hauling some of the hostages away on boats across Lake Chad, witnesses said Friday.

Several people were also reportedly killed in the militant raids on a number of villages in the Kukawa Local Government area in Borno state, a Boko Haram stronghold.

The remote area has poor mobile phone coverage, and details of the Sunday attacks took days to emerge.

A few survivors travelled to Borno’s capital Maiduguri, where they briefed reporters on the latest mass abduction by the insurgents, who are accused of killing more than 10,000 people since 2009.
