Another Boko Haram attack in northeast Nigeria

Boko Haram fighters used explosives and heavy guns to attack and destroy Kawun village. Between the attacks on a Christian church service and the market place in Kawun, at least 99 people were killed and many wounded. These attacks in Borno and Adamawa states resulted in one of the highest death tolls in recent times.

Due to continued violence and lack of personal security, all travel in these states should be avoided.
