Dozens of mourners ‘killed by Boko Haram’ at a funeral in north Nigeria

At least 65 people have lost their lives after suspected Boko Haram militants opened fire on a funeral in Nigeria’s north-eastern state of Borno. Gunmen arrived on motorcycles and in vans at the village near the state capital, Maiduguri. A number of mourners were reportedly killed straight away, while others died trying to chase off the attackers. There has been an increase in Islamist attacks across the region.

The latest attack was in revenge for the killing of 11 Boko Haram fighters by the villagers two weeks ago.
