The United States on Wednesday blacklisted Nigeria's Boko Haram group and an offshoot known as Ansaru as terror groups, bowing to months of pressure to move against the brutal insurgents. "These designations are an important and appropriate step, but only one tool in what must be a comprehensive approach by the Nigerian government to counter these groups ... to help root out violent extremism," the State Department said in a statement.
