47 people were killed in last night's (Wednesday) armed attack by the Islamist terror organization Boku Haram in the northeastern Nigerian town of Bama.

The assailants also partly burned down the palace of the traditional ruler of Borno, whose kingdom was one of West Africa’s oldest medieval Islamic caliphates.

This is one of several deadly attacks the group has executed over the last weeks.
