According to AFP, Boko Haram members this afternoon launched their first attack in Niger Republic.

They attacked Basso, a border town with Nigeria. A resident of the town who spoke with AFP said;

“We can hear the sound of weapons all around the town, often very near our windows. There is the noise of heavy weapons and of light arms, making our houses shake,”.

It is not clear whether Boko Haram were battling against Niger’s security forces or troops from Chad, also stationed at Bosso.
