Nigerian Extremists Execute Another Young Medical Worker

Hauwa Liman, a young medical worker, was executed by IS-affiliated extremists, according to The Cable. Liman and Alice Loksha, a midwife and nurse, were threatened with execution in northeast Nigeria, where they were saving lives of the poorest of the poor and ushering babies into the world. The International Committee of the Red Cross appealed to Nigeria's government and public to pressure Boko Haram, which abducted the young medical workers seven months ago, to spare them. The group killed midwife Saifura Khorsa last month and holds 15-year-old student Leah Sharibu, who was kidnapped in February.  The Nigerian government said it is shocked and saddened at the Monday killing.
