Niger’s Air Force has bombed a Boko Haram base in the country’s southeast and arrested more than 20 militants, security sources said on Thursday, in its biggest counter-attack in eight months.

Members of the Islamist militant group based mostly in North-Eastern Nigeria have repeatedly attacked the Lake Chad area, including Niger’s southern border region of Diffa.

Government forces tracked the militants after a soldier was killed when a military vehicle was blown up by remote control by the group near Lake Chad on Monday, the sources said.

“Our air forces destroyed this nest, but we do not yet have an official death toll,” a military officer said.

The officer said soldiers had arrested the remaining fighters.
