Summary execution, beheading claims in Boko Haram fight


KANO, Nigeria: Nigerian troops were on Thursday  (Friday in Manila) accused of killing 16 Boko Haram suspects, after vigilantes claimed to have beheaded dozens of Islamist fighters in the country’s far northeast. Boko Haram was meanwhile reported to have begun enforcing strict Islamic law by amputating the hands of thieves and razing churches in a captured town it renamed as part of its self-styled caliphate. And 21 civilians were killed after  Boko Haram fighters clashed with troops in the restive northeast of Nigeria on Wednesday, a local lawmaker   said on Thursday.
