Boko Haram burns kids alive in Nigeria: Officials
Feb 1, Abuja: A survivor hidden in a tree says he watched Boko Haram extremists firebomb huts and heard the screams of children among 86 people burned to death in the latest attack by Nigeria’s homegrown Islamic extremists.
Scores of charred corpses and bodies with bullet wounds littered the streets from Saturday night’s attack on Dalori village just 3 miles from
Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram and the biggest city in the northeast, according to survivors and soldiers, AP news reports said.
The shooting and burning continued for four hours, survivor Alamin Bakura said, weeping on a telephone call to The Associated Press. He said several of his family members were killed or wounded.
According to the news report, the violence continued as three female suicide bombers blew up among people who managed to flee to neighboring
Gamori village, killing many people, according to a soldier at the scene who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to journalists.
