Nigerian troops kill 35 suspected Boko Haram terrorists

Catholic World News - September 25, 2012

At least 35 people were killed, and another 60 arrested, as Nigerian troops rounded up suspected members of the Boko Haram terrorist group on September 25.

A military unit swept through the town of Damaturu, searching neighborhoods that were believed to be strongholds of the terrorist organization. Sporadic exchanges of gunfire resulted in the 35 reported deaths. Two soldiers were also wounded.

Boko Haram, which violently opposes Western influence in Nigeria, has been held responsible for a series of bombing attacks in central Nigeria.
