MADRID – A Spanish High Court judge is opening a probe into Nigerian Islamist militant group Boko Haram and its leader Abubakar Shekau for suspected crimes against humanity and terrorism.

Judge Fernando Andreu on Thursday ruled he is competent to handle the case under the principle of universal jurisdiction since it concerns a Spanish nun and no other investigation into the affair is under way.

The case refers to an attack by Boko Haram in the village of Ganye in northeastern Nigeria in March 2013, in which Spanish prosecutors say the nun was subject to harassment and coercion at the hands of the group.
