At Least 60 People Killed by Islamic Terrorists in Northern Nigeria Last Week

At least 60 people were killed by Islamic terrorists in northern Nigeria last week.

Amnesty International says the terrorists attacked the northeastern Nigeria border town of Rann, almost destroying it, leaving much of it in flames.

The attackers, believed to be from the Boko Haram terrorist group, drove motorcycles through the town near the Cameroon border, slaughtering people and setting their houses on fire.

Amnesty tweeted satellite imagery of the town which shows hundreds of burned structures. The group reports tens of thousands of people have fled the area near the border with Chad in recent weeks due to an extremist “resurgence” there.

Boko Haram in Nigeria includes a powerful Islamic State offshoot which has been escalating the violence over the past year, according to the US-backed Africa Center for Strategic Studies.
