Piles of dead bodies dumped in Nigerian town

***WARNING: STORY CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES*** This is what locals in the Nigerian town of Maiduguri saw in the main street. Dozens of bodies belonging to suspected members of the Islamist sect Boko Haram. The remote northeastern town is a stronghold for the group whose aim is to create an Islamic state in Nigeria. Members have killed hundreds of Nigerians in targeted attacks on churches and government buildings. According to a recent Amnesty International report, those accused of having links to Boko Haram are typically arrested and then immediately executed with not even the pretense of due process. Locals who asked not to be identified for security reasons say Maiduguri police dumped the bodies onto the road around midday and apeared to be sending a message to locals.
