United States send troops to Cameroon for operations against Boko Haram

USA has decided to step up its involvement in the struggle against Boko Haram, as it became known on 14 October 2015 that it is sending 300 troops to Cameroon for reconnaissance operations against the group.

Boko Haram is a jihadist organization which joined Islamic State in March 2015. It is currently fighting against forces of Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger in the region where the borders of these four nations meet. France already has been supporting these African nations with air surveillance. Now USA will do this as well.
