New Islamist attacks kill at least 31 in Nigeria

PanARMENIAN.Net - Islamist insurgents have killed at least 31 people in attacks on a village in northeast Nigeria, a state lawmaker said on Monday, March 3, a day after 85 were killed in a wave of attacks by suspected militants nearby, according to Reuters.

Gunmen stormed Mafa village in Borno state at around 8 p.m. on Sunday, shooting fleeing civilians and throwing explosives at occupied houses, witness Auwalu Gunda said.

Senator Ahmed Zannah said 29 civilians died in the raid and two policemen were killed in a bomb blast on Monday while trying to evacuate victims of the initial attack.

The Islamist sect Boko Haram has killed thousands during its four-and-a-half-year-old insurgency, which has been focused in Borno, as it looks to create an Islamic state in a religiously mixed country of 170 million people.

Twin bomb blasts in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno, killed at least 46 people on Saturday evening while, around 50 km (30 miles) away, dozens of gunmen were razing a farming village, shooting dead another 39.
