Death toll from Nigeria farm massacre rises to 110

The death toll from suspected Boko Haram farm attacks in northeast Nigeria has climbed to at least 110, the UN said, as residents buried scores of the victims and authorities searched for dozens of people who are still missing.


“At least 110 civilians were ruthlessly killed and many others were wounded in this attack”, - said Edward Kallon, UN humanitarian coordinator in the country, in a statement after initial tolls indicated 43 and then at least 70 dead.


The massacre took place on Saturday in the village of Koshobe near the city of Maiduguri in Borno state.
