CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State (IS) has recorded 69 casualties from the Nigerian Army and troops from an African anti-militant force in attacks over the past week, the Jihadist group said in a weekly paper on Thursday.
In its newspaper Al-Nabaa, it said the attacks took place in the northeastern Nigerian state of Borno and a town in the Lake Chad region, which covers Chad and Nigeria.
