MAIDUGURI, Nigeria - Suspected Islamist militants killed dozens of civilians in three villages in remote northeastern Nigeria, continuing a pattern of almost daily deadly violence, a security source and a relative of one of the victims said on Wednesday.



Gunmen in combat clothing riding on army trucks entered the villages of Attagara, Agapalawa and Aganjara, in the Gwoza area along the Cameroon border, on Tuesday. Gwoza is the main stronghold of militant Islamist group Boko Haram.

They opened fire on villagers and burned houses and churches to the ground. Dozens of people were killed in each attack, the security source said, but did not yet have precise figures
