UN suspends humanitarian assistance missions to Borno after Boko Haram attack on officials

Today Boko Haram terrorists attacked a humanitarian convoy that included staff from UNICEF, UNFPA, and IOM. The convoy was traveling from Bama to Maiduguri in Borno State, returning from delivering desperately needed humanitarian assistance to an Internally Displaced Persons camp.

According to DAILY POST, the delegation, escorted by heavily armed soldiers, came under the heavy attack from Boko Haram fighters numbering over 50, armed with anti aircraft gun (machine gun mounted on open truck).
