DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - BOOKS -

Maiduguri: Gun­men sus­pected to be­long to a rad­i­cal Is­lamist sect at­tacked a vil­lage in north­east Nigeria, ty­ing up men, women and chil­dren be­fore slit­ting their throats, killing at least 15 in the trou­bled re­gion’s lat­est at­tack, wit­nesses said Satur­day. The as­sault hap­pened early Fri­day morn­ing in the vil­lage of Musari on the out­skirts of Maiduguri, the city where the sect known as Boko Haram first launched its guer­rilla cam­paign of shoot­ings and car bomb­ings against Nigeria’s weak cen­tral government. The gun­men shouted re­li­gious slo­gans and later or­dered those there to be gath­ered up into a group, said Mshe­lia In­usa, a pri­mary school teacher in the vil­lage.
