Boko Haram Attacks Town in Niger

Friday, 06 Feb 2015 07:33 AM

NIAMEY, Niger — Boko Haram fighters from Nigeria have attacked a border town inside the neighboring country of Niger, a resident says.

The fresh violence Friday morning marks the second neighboring country attacked by the Islamic extremists in recent days.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Boko Haram fighters raided a town inside Cameroon, leaving nearly 100 people dead and some 500 others wounded.

Abba Hassan, a pharmacist reached in the border town of Bosso, said the militants were repelled by soldiers after an hour-long battle.

The region of Niger where the violence took place is an area where refugees already have arrived by the thousands seeking safety from Boko Haram attacks elsewhere.
