Hundreds flee after Boko Haram burns Nigerian village
Hundreds fled late Sunday after Boko Haram burned their homes near Nigeria‘s northeastern city of Maiduguri, residents told AFP.

Boko Haram fighters in several trucks stormed Maiborti village, five kilometres (miles) outside Maiduguri, firing indiscriminately and setting fire to homes, they said.

A military officer who did not want to be identified said troops and fighter jets were deployed to the village and scrambled to push out the militants after “fierce battle”.

It was not clear if there were casualties in the attack which once again highlighted the fragile security situation in the restive region.
