Muslims Slit Throats of 44 Villagers, Gouges Out Eyes of Surviving Victims 08/27/2013

(AP) — An official says suspected Islamist extremists killed at least 44 villagers in continuing attacks in an Islamic uprising in northeast Nigeria.

The official of the National Emergency Management Agency says the attackers hit Dumba village in Borno state before dawn Tuesday and slit their victims’ throats — a new strategy since gunfire attracts security forces.

He said the attackers gouged out the eyes of some victims who survived.
