RABAT, December 27. /TASS/. At least 14 people have been killed and dozens injured in the attack by the Boko Haram radical group in Nigeria’s north-west, Agence France-Presse reported on Sunday.
The attack took place on Friday evening in the village of Kimba in Borno State. Extremists opened fire at residents and burned down the whole village.
Boko Haram ("Western education is a sin" from the local Hausa language) is an Islamist group operating in Nigeria’s north and north-east. Boko Haram militants also attack residents in neighboring countries - Niger, Cameroon and Chad.
The group wants to establish an Islamic caliphate and introduce the sharia law on the whole territory of Nigeria. Islamists stand against Western education, democracy and the separation of powers. They also condemn wearing Western clothes and other elements of the Western culture.
In March the group pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist organization banned in Russia.
