Three U.S soldiers and four Nigerian soldiers were murdered in an attack in Southwest Niger earlier this week near the border with Mali, according to the Defense Ministry on Friday.

The ministry made updates concerning the ambush that occurred at the conflict on Thursday, explaining that the U.S side had already taken record of their deceased soldiers.

Two U.S soldiers who were training the Nigerian troops on how to war against extremists and 8 other Nigerian forces sustained injuries following the attack.

The joint patrol was ambushed by terrorist elements in a dozen vehicles and on 20 motorbikes,” Niger’s Defense Ministry said in a statement.
