BAMAKO (Reuters) – Unknown assailants killed several Niger soldiers near the border with Mali on Wednesday, according to two Niger officials, during an ambush in which Radio France International said U.S. soldiers were also killed. “What is confirmed is that there are the bodies of five Niger soldiers and others seem to be missing but I cannot say whether there were U.S. victims,” said Namatta Abubacar, a local official for the region of Tillaberi.
