Nigeria's president has appointed a retired general from the mainly Muslim north to be the new minister of defense as the country confronts an increasing number of ever-deadlier attacks by Islamic extremists staging an uprising in the northeast.
Boko Haram, the al Qaeda-inspired African terrorist group fighting to establish an Islamic state rooted in Shariah law, is expanding its operations from northeastern Nigeria into neighboring Cameroon and Niger, much to the alarm of U.S. officials.

The United States must do more than lecture embattled Nigeria, a strong U.S. ally in West Africa under assault from al Qaeda-linked Islamists sweeping across the region.

Nigeria's government is "playing to the media and not the problem" in its approach to the al Qaeda-linked insurgent group Boko Haram, says one of the oil-rich country's wealthiest men.
Cellphone service was cut off Thursday in areas of northeast Nigeria as jet fighters streaked through the sky and more soldiers were deployed to fight Islamic extremists waging a brutal insurgency.
