At least 50 fishermen have been beheaded by Boko Haram around Lake Chad region, a Cameroonian newspaper reported on Friday.

  

Details of the massacre remain sketchy, but the reliable newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, has been reporting Boko Haram atrocities for several years.

The latest massacre comes only days after ISIS released a video purportedly showing at least 10 Nigerian christians being beheaded and an 11th one being shot dead.

Boko Haram, also known as Islamic State West Africa, has killed tens of thousands of people in Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger and Chad and displaced millions.

It is attempting to create an Islamic Caliphate where only pure Muslims who practice pure Islam would be admitted.

This story would be updated.
