Nigeria: Islamists attack school, kill 42
GUNMEN believed to be Islamists from Nigeria’s Boko Haram insurgent group killed 42 people, mostly students, in an attack on a secondary school in restive Yobe state.
Eyewitnesses said some of the victims were burned alive in the attack, in Mamudo town.
“We received 42 dead bodies of students and other staff of government secondary school (in) Mamudo last night. Some of them had gunshot wounds while many of them had burns and ruptured tissues,” a Potiskum hospital spokesman told AFP.
‘Believed to be’ Islamists? Who else would do a thing like this?
