Nigeria criticised for Boko Haram attacks

Boko Haram fighters killed more than 300 people in 2014, the latest were in an attack on school, killing dozens.

    Police in Nigeria are hunting for suspected Boko Haram fighters who set fire to a college, killing 59 students, and injuring many more. Some people tried to escape through windows, but were either shot or stabbed.

    Residents accuse the security forces of abandoning the children, after promising to protect schools following a similar attack.
