Muslim jihadists massacre entire Christian village: ‘No one was spared — women, children, elderly people’

Muslim jihadists in Mali have slaughtered over 100 Christians and wiped out an entire village in the nation’s worst massacre in over 70-years.

A contact told the Barnabas Fund: “the jihadists encircled the isolated village of ethnic Dogon people at night and set fire to everything that moved in a well-targeted attack.”

According to a BBC report, one survivor told the AFP agency: “About 50 heavily armed men arrived on motorbikes and pickups. They first surrounded the village and then attacked – anyone who tried to escape was killed.”

“No one was spared — women, children, elderly people,” he added.

Most of the victims’ bodies were burned, making it difficult to identify their remains. The death toll is currently estimated to be between 100 and 135 people.
