N'Djamena - Arab Today
Some 2,000 troops from regional military powerhouse Chad headed to neighbouring Niger on Wednesday, where Boko Haram insurgents inflicted heavy losses in the town of Bosso last week, a military source said.
The "heavily armed" soldiers will "search everywhere for Boko Haram," added the source. The UN says some 50,000 people have fled Bosso after the attacks in Niger's troubled southeast.
