Please read Nigeria: 200 Killed in Week of Boko Haram Attacks, by Carey Lodge, at Christian Today.
"New reports suggest that Islamist militants have been responsible for the deaths of at least 200 civilians in north-eastern Nigeria in the last week.
"Original estimates indicated that 106 were killed in the Christian village of Izghe near the border of Cameroon in an attack on Saturday when armed men attacked the rural community, slaughtering dozens of innocent people and forcing many others to flee. The death toll has now increased to at least 121.
"The attackers are thought to be members of Boko Haram, an Islamic extremist group with ties to al-Qaeda that has declared an intention to cleanse the country of Christians, eradicate Nigerian democracy, and replace it with an Islamic state guided by Sharia law."
