Islamists Murder 99 in Attack on Nigeria Village


Islamic terrorists, using bombs and heavy guns, killed at least 99 people in an attack on a Christian village of Wada Chakawa in northeast Nigeria.

Villagers say the attackers stormed a Roman Catholic Church during Sunday morning service.

Spraying the congregation with bullets and setting off bombs, the terrorists killed dozens inside the church and held others hostage during a five-hour siege.

They also burned down hundreds of homes.

Officials say it's one of the highest death tolls in attacks by extremists.

The militant Boko Horam has not taken credit for the attack, but it's been waging a war against the government in the north.
