Earlier this week, the trade and development minister, Mogens Jensen, pledged to look into assisting the victims of the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, and today he came through with his promise.

Denmark will support the victims and humanitarian situation in Nigeria and neighbouring countries with 12.5 million kroner via the UN and the aid organisation Red Cross.

”The victims of Boko Haram's attack need help,” Jensen said in a press release. ”We must show our solidarity with the affected families and contribute to them getting food, clothing, shelter and the opportunity to get through the crisis.”

”The aid workers in the Red Cross and UN are doing great work that we can be proud to support. What's happening is completely unacceptable and it's important the international community is ready to alleviate this serious situation.”
