Boko Haram on June 9 attacked a military post in Bosso in Niger’s Diffa region, killing 26 soldiers including two from neighbouring Nigeria, in one of its deadliest attacks in Niger. Niger and Chad’s troops will engage “immediately” while Nigeria will launch an operation from the south of its territory and Cameroon will push forward from the east flank. The objective is to trap Boko Haram “in a pincer movement”, the defence minister said. / AFP
