At least 50 people have been killed, and a further 120 injured, after a Nigerian air force jet accidentally carried out an airstrike on a refugee camp in northeastern Nigeria.
Nigeria’s air force killed 50 people and injured 120 in an airstrike on a refugee camp in the northeast on Tuesday, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said. The military said the strike had targeted Boko Haram.
MSF said the strike occurred in Rann in Borno state, the epicentre of the jihadist group’s seven-year-old bid to create an Islamic caliphate. Regional military commander General Lucky Irabor located it at Kala Balge, a district including Rann.
