Sect claims soldier killings in northeast Nigeria

“Members of a radical Islamist sect ambushed an army patrol in Nigeria’s restive northeast and killed 12 soldiers, a spokesman for the group said Monday.
The military disputed the claim by the sect known as Boko Haram, though residents of the neighborhood in Maiduguri where the attack happened said they heard the fierce gun battle and explosions Sunday night where the sect said they attacked the soldiers. Meanwhile, the sect said it beheaded three people who provided information about the group to authorities, a new tactic used by group willing to use violence in its fight against Nigeria’s weak central government.”
