albawaba -

An Islamic State affiliate has claimed responsibility for an attack three months ago in Niger that killed four American soldiers on patrol with Nigerien troops.

"We declare our responsibility for the attack on the U.S. commandos last October in the Tongo Tongo region of Niger," said the statement, attributed to Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahraoui, who was a member of Al Qaeda's regional branch before pledging allegiance to the Islamic State in 2015.
