'Hundreds of suspected Boko Haram fighters have been killed since January 31 as Chadian forces, backed by Nigerian and French aircraft, overran the jihadist group's strongholds in northern Nigeria. The latest outbreak of fighting occurred after members of Boko Haram ambushed Chadian forces who had been staging in nearby Cameroon.

The Chadian military has liberated the Nigerian towns of Baga, Dikwa, Malam Fatori, Damasak, Ngala and parts of Bama in the past four days, according to a spokesman for a Nigerian militia group and reported by Bloomberg. ...'

At least 200 Boko Haram thugs got their virgins; nine Chadian troops lost their lives. The African Union has authorized 7,500 troops from Nigeria and neighboring countries to fight BoHa. France is pitching in with surveillance aircraft.
