Boko Haram crisis: Dozens killed in villages near Chibok

Dozens killed in latest Boko Haram attack. 

Dozens of villagers are feared dead after attacks by suspected Boko Haram Islamist militants in Nigeria's northeastern Borno state. The raids on Saturday morning were close to Chibok, from where more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted in April. Villagers said Boko Haram fighters spent six hours on a shooting spree, chasing fleeing residents into the bush and torching homes. Boko Haram wants to create an Islamic state in northern Nigeria.

The latest attacks by the group appear to have centred on two villages – Kwarangilam and Koronginim.
