Nigeria's mass burial: Violence over farmland worsens

As violence between herdsmen and farmers in Nigeria worsens, the number of victims continues to rise.

There's been a mass burial in Nigeria for 73 people killed in fighting between Fulani herdsmen and farmers.

They've been locked in conflict for decades over the use of grazing land.

Attacks and counterattacks between farmers and cattle herders in Nigeria have grown worse over the past five years.

Last year alone, at least 1,500 people died and more than 100,000 displaced.
