Nigeria: Compensate Families for Camp Bombing

he following quote is from Mausi Segun, senior Nigeria researcher at Human Rights Watch:

The Nigerian government should provide prompt, adequate, and effective

compensation to the victims and their families of the January 17 bombing of the displaced

persons camp in Rann, Borno State.

Even if there is no evidence of a willful attack on the camp, which would be a

war crime, the camp was bombed indiscriminately, violating international humanitarian


Victims should not be denied redress merely because the government decided the

bombing was accidental.rdquo;
