Boko Haram storms Nigerian school, kills 43 students

Men suspected to be members of an Islamic extremist group, Boko Haram killed 43 young boys today as they slept in the latest school massacre in Nigeria.

The raid at 2:00 am (0100 GMT) targeted the Federal Government College in the town of Buni Yadi in Yobe state.

The attackers reportedly hurled explosives into a locked dormitory, then shot and slit the throats of students who tried to escape through windows.

Some buildings in the school were also reportedly razed.

The insurgents then went to the female dormitories and told the young women to go home, get married and abandon the Western education ― Boko Haram means “Western education is forbidden.”

This is the fourth attack on secondary schools since Boko Haram's four-and-half year Islamist uprising, which has killed thousands of people.

  1. Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It's
    on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and
    design. Outstanding choice of colors!
