Women who fled following a deadly army attack on Ayakoromor village, take refuge with other members of the community at a microcredit organization in the nearby town of Warri, Nigeria, Saturday, December. 4, 2010. The military launched Wednesday a massive attack including aerial bombings that was aimed at finding a wanted militant. Civilians caught in the middle tried to escape with their lives, human rights activists say. The violence represents yet another example of how those toiling in poverty in a region that makes billions for Nigeria find themselves caught between a military seeking revenge and power-hungry militants.
