She Saved Lives of Nigeria's Poorest - and Was Killed for It

Twenty-five-year-old midwife Saifura Khorsa, working with the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross in a remote area of northeast Nigeria, was murdered after six months of captivity by Boko Haram. Three other humanitarian workers were killed in the attack, and two women are still being held. AllAfrica's media partner Premium Times reports that a split in the group, which has killed thousands and displaced millions, may have prompted the midwife's execution.
