Seven Niger soldiers were killed when their post was attacked by Boko Haram in the country’s southeast near Nigeria, the birthplace of the jihadist group, the government said Saturday.

The interior ministry said Friday’s raid in Chetima Wanou had led to the death of seven soldiers and injured six others while “on the enemy side (there were) several deaths including one corpse left on the spot and many injured”.

The evening raid was conducted “by heavily armed Boko Haram elements travelling in a convoy which included an armoured vehicle”, it said.

The interior ministry said the assailants were repelled after heavy fighting, adding that the soldiers had captured eight jihadists and seized “three vehicles loaded with machine guns, three AK47 assault rifles and loads of ammunition”.
