DALORI, Nigeria (AP) — A survivor hidden in a tree says he watched Boko Haram extremists firebomb huts and heard the screams of children burning to death, among 86 people officials say died in the latest attack by Nigeria's homegrown Islamic extremists.

I truly don't know what 'we' are supposed to do.
But SOMETHING has to be done.
The only news that tends to come out of Africa tends to be negative - extremist terrorists, AIDS, corruption, tyranny, starvation and famine, internecine tribal warfare etc - yet there is a completely different side to it.
At the moment Boko Harem lack the resources to project their actions much further afield than where they do at present but have still been responsible for at least 20,000 deaths in the region.
But since announcing their allegiance to IS its not inconceivable that they will at some point in the future be able to spread their sphere of influence to areas further away from their point of origin.
Nigeria and Africa needs to root out and eradicate this evil presence as soon as possible and if that means seeking aid and assistance in doing so from somewhere other than the region then they should bite the bullet and get on with it before its too late.

86 people slaughtered and burned to death, and no one says anything, no outrage, no call to stand with the Nigerians against this scourge. This should be front page news.
