NIGER SAYS 75 ‘BOKO HARAM TERRORISTS’ KILLED

The Sahel state of Niger said Wednesday around 75 Boko Haram combatants had been killed in the southeast and in neighbouring Nigeria.

Twenty-five “terrorists” were killed on Monday south of Diffa, the main city in southeast Niger, while “about 50… were neutralised” the same day on Nigerian soil in the Lake Chad region, in two operations by a regional anti-jihadist force, the defence ministry said in a statement.

The figures could not be verified independently.
