Nigerian Troops Kill Two Militants in Oil Delta

Nigerian troops shot at least two armed militants dead in the southern Niger delta four days after seven people, including two American oil workers, were killed in an ambush, a Nigerian newspaper reported on Thursday. The militants died in a gunfight with soldiers on Ogheye creek near the oil city of Warri after they attacked a military convoy sent in to find the Americans’ killers, a military spokesman said. “The troops were on their way back after deployment when the militants attacked their convoy,” Major Said Hammed said by telephone from the oil city of Warri.
