Residents of Borno state -- the stronghold of Boko Haram and an offshoot, the Islamic State in West Africa -- expressed frustration over the government’s failure to oust the extremist groups, which have killed more than 30,000 people since 2009.
The latest slaughter comes as the need for help is especially acute. Regular attacks haven’t slowed down -- militants killed 81 people on a single afternoon last month -- and the coronavirus adds another deadly threat.

A Catholic bishop has deplored the world’s indifference to escalating extremist violence in northern Mozambique, where multiple churches have been burnt, people beheaded, young girls kidnapped, and hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the violence. Bishop Luiz Fernando Lisboa of Mozambique’s Pemba diocese has been an outspoken advocate for the needs of the more than 200,000 people who have been displaced by the violent insurgency.
In June there were reports that insurgents had beheaded 15 people in a week. Yet the bishop said that the crisis in Mozambique has largely been met with “indifference” from the rest of the world.
