Another Nigerian village has suffered a devastating attack, and the nation's infamous terrorist group Boko Haram is likely to blame.
Gunmen stormed the village of Gumsuri on Sunday, burning buildings, killing an estimated 33 people and kidnapping at least 185. The attack took place in a remote corner of northern Nigeria so isolated that the news didn't make headlines until Thursday.
Officials are blaming the murders and kidnappings on Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist group that's killed thousands of people in the region this year alone. The group's most notorious attack resulted in the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls from a school in Chibok back in April.
