Children were among those killed when Islamist terror group Boko Haram torched a village in north-eastern Nigeria, according to reports.
More than 50 villagers lost their lives when fighters armed with guns and explosives stormed Dalori, some seven miles from the city of Maiduguri, late on Sunday.
Extremists began shooting indiscriminately and set fire to homes and businesses after driving into the village shortly after evening prayers. Residents who tried to escape by fleeing to nearby bush were later hunted down and shot dead by insurgents.
Horrific photographs of the village in the aftermath of the strike show the charred bodies of humans and animals strewn across the streets.
