bocoharamAccording to reports, Boco Haram, a group of Islamic extremists, has recently firebombed huts, and killed 86 people, including children, in Nigeria.

Burned corpses and dead bodies with bullet wounds reportedly lined the streets, following a Jan. 30 attack on Dalori village, and two nearby refugee camps housing about 25,000 people, survivors of the attack stated.

The attack took place three miles from Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram, and the largest city in northeastern Nigeria.

According to survivors, troops who arrived at the scene were unable to defeat the attackers, including three female suicide bombers, who were better armed than the soldiers.

Mohammed Kanar, area coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency,  said 86 bodies had been collected by Sunday, and 62 people were being treated for burns.

Boco Haram has reportedly killed an estimated 20,000 people and driven millions from their homes since the military has driven them out of villages in Northeastern Nigeria.
