Nigerians flee government offensive in Borno

Thousands of people continue to flee violence in Nigeria.

    The UN says thousands of people continue to flee the violence in Nigeria, a month since the start of a military offensive in three northern states against the armed group Boko Haram.

    So far more than 6,000 refugees have arrived in the town of Bosso in neighbouring Niger. 

    Boko Haram, a radical armed group, has been blamed for the deaths of thousands of civilians.

    Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Bosso, Niger.
