Nigerian Forces Take Out 32 Militants
By Harold Hutchison
Nigerian forces have killed nearly three dozen militants tied to the terrorist group Boko Haram in two separate attacks. Three Nigerian policemen were killed, but 32 members of the terrorist group were killed.
Boko Haram has been responsible for a number of attacks in the northern part of Nigeria since 2009 that have killed thousands. A recent surge in attacks by the group lead Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan to order additional troops into the region in May.
Last week, 42 members of the terrorist group were captured by Nigerian authorities.
