Boko Haram Attacks Christian Town in Nigeria

A Christian-majority town in northeast Nigeria was attacked by the Boko Haram Muslim terror group Monday night, leaving an unknown number of casualties and sending residents fleeing for the surrounding mountains.

“I can confirm to you that many people were killed last night and many were injured as well,” said one witness in the town of Michika.

This was the second attack on the town in as many months; Boko Haram militants attacked Michika and four other towns in February, reportedly killing women, children, and elderly people.
