Boko Haram slits the throats of Nigerian villagers in latest attack

Boko Haram gunmen killed dozens of people in four villages in northeast Nigeria, slitting some residents' throats and opening fire on others, one resident and the police said on Tuesday.

"Boko Haram gunmen came into our villages at night, killing 43 people," said Sheriff Kulo, from Kilwa village near Monguno, who escaped to the Borno state capital, Maiduguri.

There was no corroboration of his death toll but the state police commissioner confirmed the raids, which happened late last Friday.

Girls rescued from Boko Haram camp not from Chibok, Nigerian military says

Girls rescued from Boko Haram terror camps in Sambisa Forest on Tuesday are "not the Chibok girls," Nigerian Army spokesman Sani Usman said.

However, one official did not rule out that captives from other Boko Haram camps that were raided might include some of the 200 girls abducted in April 2014 from a school in Chibok.

Nigerian troops rescued 200 girls and 93 women Tuesday in the Sambisa Forest in the northeastern part of the country, the Nigerian Armed Forces announced on its official Twitter account. The forest is a stronghold for the militant Boko Haram group and is not far from Chibok.

Boko Haram In Nigeria Runs Out Of Weapons, Ammunition As Nigerian Army Advances On Sambisa Forest

The Boko Haram insurgents in northern Nigeria have run out of weapons and ammunition, and the Nigerian army is advancing on the militant group's remaining territory in Borno state's Sambisa Forest, military sources and residents told local reporters Thursday. The intensified military operation by Nigerian and coalition forces has reportedly weakened the Islamic militant group and cut off their arms supply.

"The Boko Haram terrorists have run out of arms and ammunitions as the military intensify attacks on Sambisa Forest," a resident of Tabe village of Damboa who narrowly escaped from the area, told Vanguard news in Abuja. "You can find more than 500 members of the insurgents, with only a few of them having rifles and even when one or two of them have rifles, it is like a stick, as they have run out of ammunitions, because the usual supplies they get are not forthcoming."

WILL TURKEY REPEAT GENOCIDE OF CHRISTIANS?

Could it happen again?

That's the question many ask when contemplating the Armenian Genocide on this, its official 100th anniversary. Could the Islamic world, now 1.5 billion strong, again turn on its Christian neighbors in a massive way as it did so horrifically in Turkey during World War I? And could the government of Turkey actually make it happen again? Some historians say yes.

Unlike the Nazi Holocaust, the perpetrator of the Armenian Genocide denies it ever happened. Because Turkey has not exorcised those demons, it's a bad omen for the future, especially as Turkey continues to gain prominence in the Muslim world, say some scholars and Christian leaders.

In fact, the slaughter has already begun in the Middle East, on a smaller scale but with cold-blooded precision similar to the systematic elimination of Armenians and other Christians by the Ottoman Turks.

Boko Haram kill two soldiers in NE Nigeria: residents

Two soldiers were killed in a Boko Haram rocket attack on a military vehicle in the northeast Nigerian town of Baga, residents told AFP Tuesday.

Six other soldiers and a civilian vigilante were critically injured when their vehicle hit a mine planted by the Islamists just outside the town in Borno state Sunday, they added.

The attack and the mine explosion happened as the military escorted some 1,200 people from Baga on a brief return visit to their hometown from the Borno state capital, Maiduguri.
