Destruction wreaked by Boko Haram shown in satellite images

  • Satellite imagery has revealed widespread destruction of areas in Nigeria where militant group Boko Haram  carried out attacks in recent weeks, according to Amnesty International.

    Around 3,700 structures have either been damaged or destroyed in Doron Baga and Baga, the rights group said.

    Activists say that as many as 2,000 people have been killed in the latest attacks by the Islamist group, but the Nigerian government has put the toll at 150. The satellite images indicate that the death toll could be higher than the government claims.
