At least 63 people were killed in Nigeria when home-made bombs in a disused Boko Haram camp detonated in northeast Nigeria Wednesday, sources said.
According to local self-defense fighters, many abandoned hand-made bombs allegedly belonging to Boko Haram exploded when local residents living in the northeastern town of Monguno discovered and explored the former Boko Haram camp.
Nigeria has battled a six-year Boko Haram insurgency that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and displaced over a million people.
Almost a year after Boko Haram seized towns across the northeast region, the Nigerian army -- backed by regional troops from Chad and Niger -- has pushed the group out of most of the territories they captured earlier.Güncelleme Tarihi: 17 Haziran 2015, 16:52
