Boko Haram has struck Diffa, Niger, murdering at least 38 people, including women and children. The attack happened on two villages in the region late Wednesday night. ICC is working with its partners in Niger to ascertain whether or not Christians were targeted in the assault, but it bears some of the marks of a typical Boko Haram attack on Christians where the group has historically targeted Christian women and their children for murder and often kidnapping. Christians represent less than five percent of the overall population in Niger that is majority Muslim.

 

Full Story

  • Pray for the healing of the 38 children wounded during the attack
  • Pray that God would bring peace and comfort into the hearts of those who have lost loved ones during this time
  • Pray for the strengthening of Nigeria’s government to fight against Boko Haram and stop their violent acts against Christians
