Nigeria to UN: Classify Boko Haram as Terror Organization

Nigeria filed an official request with the United Nations Security Council to include the Boko Haram terrorist organization on its terrorist organization blacklist in light of the group’s kidnapping of over 300 girls last month.

A UN diplomat indicated that if the Security Council accepts the request, sanctions could be placed on Boko Haram as early as this coming Thursday.
