Six killed in Boko Haram raid on Niger village

Six people were killed on Friday in a village in southern Niger in an attack thought to have been carried out by Boko Haram militants, the Defence Ministry said.

The six victims died from gunshot wounds or being burnt alive, the ministry said.

Another seven people were wounded in the attack and have been evacuated, Reuters reported.

The militants torched about 10 homes, the market and some cattle and stole two vehicles, the ministry said.

A teacher in Bosso, 4 km (2.5 miles) from Yebi, said the attackers were young men who arrived on foot, horseback and camel. They filled up two pick-up trucks with food, he added.

Mamadou Bako, Bosso’s mayor, said the death toll could rise because security forces were searching through the rubble of burnt homes.
