Suspected Boko Haram militants have killed five people in a village in Southeastern Niger Republic close to its border with Nigeria.

The insurgents are reported to have ridden into the village on camels at night and opened fire.
However, the attack was repelled by a civilian militia in the commune of Toumour, about 75 km (47 miles) from the regional capital Diffa.
The attackers also burned houses and left several other people wounded.
Diffa region has been targeted several times by the insurgents who usually come on foot or in vehicles.
Most of the territories previously seized by the terrorists in the Northeastern parts of Nigeria have been liberated by the Nigerian military supported by troops from Niger and Chad. (Agency Report)
