The jihadist gunmen have raided villages near Niger’s border with Mali shooting “at everything that moved” according to the DW.

The Nigerian villages of Intazayene, Bakorat, and Wistane near the border with Mali became the place of tragedy when the gunmen were shooting at everything.

“The government condemns these brutal acts perpetrated by individuals who know neither faith nor the law,” the government spokesman said.

He also announced three days of national mourning starting Tuesday, adding that the government vowed to reinforce security in the region and bring “the perpetrators of these cowardly and criminal acts” to justice.
