On Saturday, a girl walked into a crowded market in Maiduguri, Nigeria. When she was stopped to be screened, the explosives that were strapped to her went off, killing her and at least 20 other people. She is believed to have been a suicide bomber sent by the terrorists of Boko Haram, the same group that was responsible for the kidnapping of the 275 Chibok schoolgirls.
On January 3, 2015, Boko Haram men went to the city of Baga and killed up to an estimated 2,000 people, mostly civilians. They ravaged the town, burning down buildings and leaving the largest body count they have yet. This is their deadliest act in their reign of terror in Northern Nigeria, and 30,000 people have been displaced because of this attack, trying to find safety. Some swam to nearby Chad, and many died on the way there.
It took at least 5 days after it happened for us to find out about it. And 8 days later, it is still not headline news in the United States.
