Boko Haram Jihadis Burn Children Alive, Slay Over 100 Villagers in Nigeria Massacre
In one of their most heinous massacres to date, militants from the radical Islamist Boko Haram group slaughteredover a hundred victims in a village in northeast Nigeria Saturday night, including a number of children whom they burned alive.
The latest atrocity from the jihadi group allied to the Islamic State took place in the village of Dalori, some three miles from Maiduguri, Nigeria. Vice Chairman of a civilian joint task force in Dalori, Modu Kaka, said that at least 100 dead bodies were taken away but that hundreds are still missing.
Witnesses spoke of “scores of bodies” burned and riddled with bullets lying in the streets after the attack Saturday night. One man, who managed to escape by hiding in a tree, said that he could hear the wails of children screaming in the flames.
