Nigerian army fighter jets bombed camps belonging to suspected Islamist militants in northeast Nigeria in response to Sunday's attack on an agricultural college, an army spokesman said.
Nigeria is miffed at U.S. criticism of its president after he pardoned a politician convicted of corruption and of the Nigerian army's response to terrorist attacks in the oil-rich West African nation.
The U.S. ambassador to Nigeria compared the terrorist violence in the northern part of the West African nation to the crime wave that gripped New York in the 1980s, as he urged the Nigerian government to abandon "heavy-handed" military tactics and adopt a softer approach in dealing with the Islamic militant threat.
A bomb blast tore through a beer garden at a Nigerian army barracks where revelers had gathered to celebrate New Year's Eve, witnesses said, and state-run television reported Friday that 30 people died, though police immediately disputed that.
