Nigeria: Boko Haram clashes leave 13 Nigerian soldiers wounded and other missing


Thirteen Nigerian soldiers were wounded in clashes with the Islamist militant group Boko Haram and others are missing, the army said on Tuesday.

Army spokesman Sani Usman said the clashes took place at Gashigar, a town in the northeast’s Borno state, near the border with Niger.

“The troops did their best to defend the location in vain. In the process, 13 soldiers sustained injuries while some are still missing in action,” said Usman. He did not say how many were missing.

Islamic State (IS), to which the Nigerian jihadists have pledged allegiance, said on Twitter that a total of 20 soldiers from Nigeria and neighboring Niger had been killed and many others were wounded. Usman denied this.
