Boko Haram Trials Resume in Nigeria

Hundreds of people with suspected links to the Boko Haram terror group have stood trial at Kainji Detention Centre in Nigeria, as trials resume to convict those part of the country’s largest Islamist insurgency.

The Nigerian authorities invited journalists and members of human rights groups to see the proceedings, after accusations of inhumane treatment were made in the first stage of the trials, which were held privately.

More than 20,000 people have been killed, and a further two million have been forced to flee as Boko Haram and Government forces continue to clash in a conflict that has been ongoing since 2009.
