'Dozens' killed in Boko Haram attack in Nigeria: locals

A screengrab taken on July 13, 2014 from a video released by the Nigerian Islamist extremist group Boko Haram and obtained by AFP shows the group's leader, Abubakar Shekau (C)Boko Haram gunmen attacked Nigeria’s restive northeastern town of Gwoza on Wednesday leaving dozens dead, residents said, in the latest violence blamed on the Islamists. The extremists raided the town, some 135 kilometres (83 miles) from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state before dawn, forcing residents to flee their homes, locals said. “Dozens of our people have been killed by the attackers, some were slaughtered and many others shot with guns,” resident James Mshelia told AFP. “They have scared hundreds of residents to flee to the mountains along Nigeria and Cameroon borders,” said Francis Mbala, a former vice chairman of Gwoza local government.
