Niger military kills 10 Boko Haram extremists

28 May 2016, 19:51

Niamey - Niger's army has killed at least 10 Boko Haram militants after they tried to attack a military post in the country's southeast near its border with Nigeria.

Col. Moustapha Michel Ledru said Saturday that three soldiers were also wounded in fighting in the Diffa region between Niger's military and the Nigeria-based Islamic extremists.

He said the Boko Haram fighters retreated after the military fought back, taking arms and ammunition from the extremists.

Thousands of people fleeing Boko Haram attacks have fled to the Diffa region in Niger.

Boko Haram's nearly seven-year insurgency has killed thousands and displaced millions. The extremists have been launching attacks across Nigeria's borders into Niger, Chad and Cameroon. Those countries are contributing to a multinational force fighting Boko Haram.
