Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A Boko Haram raid on a village in Nigeria's Borno state killed three people, a member of a local civilian security force said.
Members of the Islamist insurgent group attacked Yaza-Kumaza, in the southern part of northeastern Borno state on Sunday afternoon. Michael Emmanuel, leader of the area's civilian security force, said many villagers fled as the attackers opened fire. By Sunday night, most had not returned. He added that many homes were looted.
