Boko Haram's long reign of violence

Nigerian group launched deadly attacks for years before recent abductions of schoolgirls attracted world's attention.

    The abduction of almost 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria has recently attracted the world's attention to the armed group Boko Haram, which claimed responsibility for it.

    But the group has a much longer record of violence and kidnappings, targeting schools, police stations and official buildings and killing thousands of people in the country.
