Nigeria: Security forces killed 8 islamist Boko Haram militants in Maiduguri


Nigerian security forces say they have killed at least eight militants in fighting in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri.

The army said the members of Islamist militant group Boko Haram died in an exchange of gunfire following explosions at a market.

Three civilians were also injured, said the army, although witnesses reported seeing at least 20 corpses at a market.

Boko Haram has launched a series of deadly attacks across northern Nigeria.

Residents told the BBC they had heard several explosions coming from the Baga market.

A military spokesman told the BBC that soldiers had responded to the explosions and engaged in a gun battle with militants.
