Over 150 people were killed in a series of terror attacks in northern Nigeria last week. On 17 September 2013 the Islamist militant group Boko Haram blocked the highway from Maiduguri to Damatura, killing 143 travelers, and on the 18th Boko Haram gunmen attacked two towns.
On the 17th, the terrorist group ambushed a military convoy on the Baga to Maidurguri highway. The army reports that an officer and 15 soldiers were killed in the attack, though local news sources report 40 soldiers dead and 65 missing. The ambush followed a clash between government forces and Boko Haram earlier in the week in Kafiya Forest in Borno State, which killed 150 Boko Haram fighters.
