Boko Haram staged an overnight assault on a border town in Niger, residents said Sunday, the second time the nation has come under attack by the extremists since Friday.

The attack on the town of Diffa began on Saturday night, and fighting between Boko Haram and Niger’s army lasted until 05:00 toward the town’s southern entrance before the extremists were forced to flee and calm was restored, Diffa resident Adam Boukar said.

Officials could not immediately be reached to confirm residents’ accounts or give casualty figures.
