Mass Trials For Boko Haram Suspects in Nigeria

At least 1,000 alleged Boko Haram militants will be appear in court to hear whether they will be prosecuted, sentenced or released. The decision to hold the cases in public comes after human rights groups, including Amnesty International, criticised secret hearings during the first phase of the trials last October. The trials were halted for four months to enable the authorities to complete investigations.
