Nigeria : Boko Haram kills seven people after attacking a military base in Nigeria

A military source said the attack was carried out in Rann, some 175 kilometers (110 miles) northeast of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, late on Monday afternoon.

He said that poor visibility due to seasonal Harmattan winds obstructed the deployment of air force jets, and soldiers were forced to withdraw.

“So far we have three soldiers killed and two others are still unaccounted for,” the source said.
