Fiji Sun - - World News -

New York: The UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil has said it is alarmed by ties be­tween Nige­ria’s Boko Haram Is­lamist mil­i­tants and the Is­lamic State (IS) group. In a state­ment, it said Boko Haram - which pledged al­le­giance to IS in 2015 - con­tin­ued to “un­der­mine the peace and sta­bil­ity” in West and Cen­tral Africa.

Mean­while, a se­nior US of­fi­cial said there were re­ports of Boko Haram fight­ers join­ing IS in Libya. Nige­ria is to host a sum­mit on Satur­day on fight­ing Boko Haram. BBC
