Nigeria: Islamists kill 59 pupils at boarding school
At least 59 children have been killed in Nigeria after Islamist gunmen opened fire at a boarding school before burning it to the ground, officials say.
Members of the Boko Haram group targeted secondary school students as they slept in a dormitory, police say.
Military spokesman Lazarus Eli said the gunmen “opened fire on student hostels” at the Federal Government College, which is in the town of Buni Yadi in Yobe state and attended by students aged 11 to 18.
How can any human being with a shred of compassion bear to hold a belief associated with these murderous actions?
