ABUJA:The Islamic State group has claimed to have beheaded 11 Christians in Nigeria, BBC reported.

IS said it was part of its recently declared campaign to “avenge” the death of its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during a US raid in Syria in October.

No details were given about the victims, who were all male, but IS says they were “captured in the past weeks” in Nigeria’s north-eastern Borno State.

Analysts say the ruthless killing was clearly timed to coincide with Christmas celebrations.
