Militants from the Islamist terror group Boko Haram slaughtered the Nigerian fishing village of Baga in January, forcing survivors to flee the country and seek refuge in an island in Lake Chad — and the refugees' numbers grow each day as the Islamist terror group carves a bloody path through sub-Sarahan Africa, NBC News reported. Up to 2,000 people were killed in the January attack when militants torched buildings and gunned down civilians, local officials said. "They came into the town shooting guns. They slaughtered people," a villager named Zara, whose son was killed, told NBC News. "They killed him. I have seen with my eyes."
