Israel Sends Counter-Terrorism Experts to Nigeria


Israel has sent two anti-terror experts to Nigeria to join the search for hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by vicious Islamist group Boko Haram, an Israeli security source said on Tuesday. "There are in Nigeria two advisers who have dealt with terrorist matters in the past," he told AFP. "They were sent there by the state to help."

The pair were not currently serving as intelligence personnel for the Israeli government. "They are not soldiers, not officers. They are not part of the security system," the source added.
