Dozens killed in Boko Haram attacks in northeast Nigeria

Although the government says Boko Haram has been defeated, the group continues to target isolated, vulnerable villages.

The UN has condemned an attack in northeastern Nigeria that killed at least 34 people and injured dozens more. Suspected Boko Haram fighters detonated bombs and opened fire on residents of two communities on the outskirts of Maiduguri city.
