The scourge of Boko Haram and attacks by other groups in Mali

New report on Boko Haram.

At least 20 people were killed and others are missing after militants ambushed a convoy transporting civilians from Sabon Gari to displacement camps in Damboa in northeast Nigeria’s Borno state, according to reports.

Witnesses told the Associated Press that the military was moving civilians to the IDP camps in Damboa when the convoy was ambushed on Saturday, May 26.

and in Mali, 100 killed:

Clashes between Dogon hunters and semi-nomadic Fulani herders are frequent.

Mali’s government said “suspected terrorists” had attacked the village at around 03:00 local time. At least 19 people were still missing, it said.

The Fulani, a largely Muslim ethnic group, have been accused of having links with the Islamist uprising. But for their part, the Fulani accuse a Dogon self-defence association, Dan Na Ambassagou, of attacks on them.
