Boko Haram Launches Maiden Attack In Niger


Islamist group Boko Haram for the first time launched an attack on Friday in Niger against the town of Bosso, just across the border from Nigeria, witnesses told AFP.

“We can hear the sound of weapons all around the town, often very near our windows. There is the noise of heavy weapons and of light arms, making our houses shake,” one resident told AFP. It was not immediately clear whether the Nigerian armed Islamists were battling against Niger’s security forces or troops from Chad, also stationed at Bosso.
