The militant group Boko Haram has escalated its campaign of terror in northern Nigeria. Last year the Islamist fighters abducted nearly 300 school girls. Early this month they massacred hundreds in a border town near Chad in what Amnesty International says might be the group’s “deadliest act” so far. This week soldiers in the neighboring nation of Cameroon fought off a Boko Haram raid, raising fears of regional instability. The Nigerian government has been unable to quell the violence. We discuss Boko Haram, the roots of the insurgency and what can be done.
