Nigeria: Islamists kill seven hostages
A NIGERIAN Islamist group claims it has killed seven foreign hostages abducted from a construction site last month.
Intelligence sources said the group made the claim on Saturday and issued images it said were from a video of the dead hostages.
The group said attempts by the British and Nigerian governments to rescue the hostages, and their “arrest and killing of people”, forced it to carry out the execution.
An official from the construction company, Setraco, told AFP he was aware of the report but could not confirm it.
