A military strike on a Boko Haram Islamist camp in Nigeria's restive northeast has killed 150 Islamists and 16 soldiers, army spokesman Ibrahim Attahiru told AFP Wednesday.
"It was a highly fortified insurgent camp with heavy weapons in (northeastern) Borno State," Attahiru said. "The army raided the camp on September 12. Some 150 Boko Haram terrorists were killed, while the military lost 16 soldiers. Nine solders are still missing."
