Islamic State Increases Ties to Boko Haram Militants in Video, Northern Nigeria, Apr. 2015

Taken on 2015-04-24

'The Islamic State (IS) has released a new video, eulogising Nigeria's Boko Haram, in the latest sign of closer ties between the two militant groups. Images posted on IS-linked social media accounts refer to Boko Haram as the Islamic State's West Africa Province (Iswap) - a catchy name aimed at showing that it has expanded beyond the Middle East and North Africa. Previous videos have not shown the faces of those claimed to be Boko Haram fighters.' (BBC Article)
