Nigeria's Boko Haram leader claims Baga massacre
The acknowledgment from the leader of Nigeria's Islamic extremists comes in a video posted on YouTube Tuesday, the same day International Criminal Court prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said she is examining the allegations and will prosecute those most responsible for war crimes.
According to a translation from Arabic provided by SITE Intelligence Group, Shekau says: "We are the ones who fought the people of Baga, and we have killed them with such a killing."
Amnesty International says as many as 2,000 civilians were killed and 3,700 homes and business were destroyed in the Jan. 3 attack. Baga and a key military base remain under Boko Haram's control.
