URGENT - Nigeria Unrest
(CNN) -- At least 20 insurgents were killed Friday as Nigeria's military carried out an aerial bombardment of suspected militant Islamist camps in the country's northeast, said Brig. Gen. Chris Olukolade, a Defense Ministry spokesman. The raid by Nigerian Air Force jets and attack helicopters is part of a massive deployment of Nigerian forces this week to tackle insurgent groups, including Boko Haram.
