The military has confirmed that 200 Boko Haram fighters and nine Chadian soldiers killed in clashes in Gamboru and other border towns following days of intense assault by the Chadian troops on Nigerian soil.

Meanwhile, French military aircraft have been carrying out surveillance missions to help countries bordering Nigeria tackle Boko Haram militants, officials said on Tuesday, amid efforts by African countries to coordinate a response to the threat posed by the terror group.

The African Union (AU) has authorised a force of 7,500 troops from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroun and Niger that make up the Multinational Joint Task Force (MJTF) under the Lake Chad Basin Commission to fight the insurgents.
