At least 30 Nigerian soldiers have been killed in a bloody combat with Boko Haram jihadists, according to a report by AFP on Saturday.

AFP reported that military sources told the news agency that the terrorists overran a military base in the northeast near the border with Niger on Saturday leading to the death of the soldiers.

Scores of jihadists in trucks stormed the base at Zari village in northern Borno state late Thursday and briefly seized it after a fierce battle in which 30 soldiers were killed, they said.
