Boko Haram bombs Nigerian school, ‘not slowing down attacks against civilians’

Islamic Extremism

Boko Haram is suspected in yet another deadly attack in Nigeria. At least 48 students were killed in a suicide bombing at a school in the northeastern part of the country. Dozens are being treated for injuries, some so serious that amputations may be required.

A suicide bomb attack in the same city killed 30 people one week ago when suspected Boko Haram fighters attacked a religious procession of moderate Muslims.

For more on the Nigeria school attack, CCTV America’s Elaine Reyes interviewed Daveed Gartenstein-Ross. He’s a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and is a professor of security studies at Georgetown University. He specializes in the study of al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations.
