FILE - In this Sunday April. 21, 2013 file photo taken with a mobile phone, the ruins of burnt out houses stand in Baga village in Nigeria. Hundreds of bodies too many to count remain strewn in the bush in Nigeria from an Islamic extremist attack that Amnesty International suggested Friday is the "deadliest massacre" in the history of Boko Haram. Mike Omeri, the government spokesman on the insurgency, said fighting continued Friday for Baga, a town on the border with Chad where insurgents seized a key military base on Jan. 3 and attacked again on Wednesday. "Security forces have responded rapidly, and have deployed significant military assets and conducted airstrikes against militant targets," Omeri said in a statement. (AP Photo/Haruna Umar, file )

Saudi soldiers look out from Mt. Doud, Wednesday Jan. 27, 2010, a high strategic position in the southern Saudi province of Jizan, near the border with Yemen, that was occupied by Houthi rebels from Yemen, and was retaken by the Saudi military a week ago. At least 133 Saudis soldiers died, mostly in the ground fighting to retake the strategic high ground on the frontier. It is not clear how many rebels were killed. Saudi joined the 5-year-old fight when Yemeni rebels crossed the border and killed two Saudi soldiers. The northern rebels have been battling Yemen's government since 2004 complaining of neglect and discrimination. (Associated Press) **FILE**
