Women fleeing from Boko Haram Islamists walk past burnt livestock at Mairi village outskirts of Maiduguri capital of northeast Borno State, on February 6, 2016. Suspected Boko Haram Islamists have killed four people following raids on villages in Nigeria's northeastern Borno state, a local official and residents said on February 6. The motorcycle-riding Islamists late Friday raided two villages, Mairi and Malari setting homes ablaze, and killing three women and a man in the village. The raids came barely a week after the attack on the village of Dalori, just outside Maiduguri, capital of the restive state, which left at least 85 people dead.

International transport trucks are blocked two kilometres from the border crossing of Promachonas between Greece and Bulgaria, in northern Greece, as farmers set up a blockade at customs offices, shutting down the movement of trucks to and from Bulgaria on February 7, 2016. Greek farmers protesting against pension reforms heightened highway and border protests around the country, piling pressure on the leftist government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. The mobilisation which began in mid-January has created tractor blockades at dozens of highway locations and key border crossings to Bulgaria and Turkey, which the farmers intermittently open for a few hours each day.
