Nigerian militant group Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for mass killings in the city of Baga and is promising further attacks.

A video posted online Wednesday shows the Islamist group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, declaring “We carried out the Baga massacre, and we are going to do more.”

Fighters are seen showing off what appear to be thousands of rifles, along with grenades, rocket launchers, machine guns and stacked boxes of ammunition.
