Daesh claims responsibility for Niger army base attack
Daesh's West Africa affiliate Tuesday claimed responsibility for an attack on an army base in Niger last week that killed at least 89 Nigerien soldiers, according to a statement translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

Daesh's West Africa Province said in the statement that its fighters killed 100 soldiers and wounded an unspecified number of others in the raid last Thursday on the base in the town of Chinagodrar, near the Malian border.
