Nigeria: Ansaru islamist group kills 7 foreigners kidnapped in Bauchi state

AN Islamist group, which declared itself independent from Boko Haram, Ansaru, has said on Saturday that it had killed seven foreign hostages it seized on February 7 from a construction company in Jama’are town of Bauchi State, SITE Monitoring Service said.

According to the online news source, Reuters, the group issued a statement in Arabic and English on an affiliate of the Sinam al-Islam network accompanied by screen shots of a video purporting to show the dead hostages, SITE said. One screen shot showed a man with a gun standing above several prone figures lying on the ground.

Ansaru, which had kidnapped other foreigners in the past, had blasted into the compound housing the foreigners who were workers with SETRACO construction company, using explosives and ended up killing a security man while it also abducted a Briton, an Italian, a Greek and four Lebanese workers, the largest number of foreigners kidnapped in the mostly Muslim North since an insurgency by Islamist militants intensified two years ago.
