Topic: Boko Haram attacks soldiers in Niger, wounds five: officials


Boko Haram militants clashed on Friday with soldiers in Niger, who were reinforcing border positions to fend off the insurgency that is spreading from Nigeria into neighboring states, officials in Niger said. At least five local soldiers were wounded, they said. The fighting is taking place in the southeastern region of Diffa where Chad has sent hundreds of troops to help Niger take on Boko Haram at its long, porous border. Violence erupted when Boko Haram fighters, who have seized swathes of territory in Nigeria, attacked the Niger town of Bosso from the neighboring Nigerian town Malam Fatori, a military source said.
