The UK fully supports the statements made by the United Nations Secretary-General and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights which strongly condemned the recent killing of civilians by the terrorist group Boko Haram in Baga, Nigeria. Boko Haram continues to wreak havoc across North East Nigeria, causing suffering in communities of different faiths and ethnicities. As I set out in my answer to the Honourable Member for Brent Central (Sarah Teather)'s Urgent Question on 12 January (Hansard Column 601), the UK has taken an active role in leading international support to Nigeria in its fight against Boko Haram, alongside other international partners, including the UN. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) also discussed the situation with Secretary Kerry on 15 January 2015.
