Nigeria's Military 'Destroys' 10 Boko Haram Camps

Nigeria's army says it has cleared 10 more camps used by Boko Haram in the north-east of the country.
There was a fierce battle around Dure camp, which a statement describes as one of the most "prominent" hideouts for the militants.
Boko Haram has not yet commented on the army statement and there has been no independent confirmation.
The army has recaptured most of the vast area the militants had seized but the Islamists remain active.

Thousands have been killed, mostly in north-eastern Nigeria, in attacks carried out by Boko Haram since 2009.
