Militants Kill More Than 60 Mourners in Northeast Nigeria Attack
(Bloomberg) -- Suspected militants killed at least 60 people and injured 11 others in Badu village of Nigeria’s northern Borno state.
The villagers were in a mourning procession when the assailants laid a siege on Saturday, a local administrative official, Muhammad Bulama, told reporters on Sunday.
Islamist militant group Boko Haram has been attacking the region for over a decade, killing tens of thousands of people and displacing many more.
