MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Islamic State said it had killed 20 Nigerian soldiers in an attack on Wednesday in the country's northeastern Borno state.

The claim of responsibility was translated into English and published on the SITE Intelligence website.

Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA), which split from Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram in 2016, has carried out a number of attacks in the northeast over the last few months.
