Scores Dead in Boko Haram Attack on Nigerian Funeral Procession

At least 65 people have been killed and several injured after a funeral procession in Maiduguri in a suspected Boko Haram attack. The militant group has been at the forefront of terror attacks over a ten-year period which have seen thousands lose their lives. The group has also perpetrated suicide bombings at market places and other high traffic areas, attacks at places of worship and kidnappings, most notably that of the Chibok schoolgirls which drew world attention through the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.
