More than half of Borno schools closed over Boko Haram [no comment]

More than half of all schools in the northeastern state of Borno, Nigeria, are closed with millions of children unable to start classes this year because of the ongoing threat of Boko Haram. Almost 1,400 schools have been destroyed in Borno during the armed group’s eight-year rebellion, and more than 57 percent of schools are unable to open because of damage or being in areas that remain unsafe.
