Nigeria: `Boko Haram kills 2 in gruesome attack`
Maiduguri: Nigeria`s Army says suspected members of a radical Islamist sect killed two people in a gruesome slaying in a besieged city in Nigeria`s northeast.
Spokesman Lt Col Sagir Musa said on Friday the assailants slit their victims` throats late yesterday in Maiduguri where the Boko Haram sect once had its main mosque. The Army says they believe members of the sect carried out the attack.
The slayings come four days after authorities discovered nine bodies in the city with their throats slit.
Boko Haram has carried out a campaign of bombings in its fight against the Nigeria government and public, but knife attacks are uncommon.
The group is held responsible for more than 630 deaths this year alone, according to a news agency’s count.
