IDP Mistakenly Bombed by Nigerian Military Reportedly Populated by Christians (Photos)
About 100 people were killed after a Nigerian fighter jet accidentally bombed a refugee camp after mistaking them for Boko Haram extremists.
Among the dead were 20 Red Cross workers, and several Nigerians in the camp.
The incident took place northeast Rann, near the border with Cameroon.
The camp in northeast Nigeria was for those made homeless by Boko Haram Islamists.
The Camp is reportedly dominated by Christians.
Medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) on Tuesday condemned an accidental air strike by the Nigerian military on the camp, and their director of operations Jean-Clement Cabrol said: ‘This large-scale attack on vulnerable people who have already fled from extreme violence is shocking and unacceptable.’
