AVIP carried out a rapid attack in the Koura area southwest of the Nigerian capital Niamey

Daesh (ISIS) praised its West African branch “AVIP” for the murder of six French humanitarian workers and their driver and guide from Nigeria in Niger on August 9, the intelligence group “SITE”, which monitors jihadist portals, announced.

The statement said AVIP carried out a rapid attack in the Koura area southwest of the Nigerian capital Niamey.

“The attack resulted in the killing of six people after being captured along with their two others,” the statement said.

The six Frenchmen and their driver worked for the international humanitarian group “ACTED” and toured the reserve, which the Nigerian administration declared safe.

France and other countries have warned people not to go to parts of Niger where militants are active, including Boko Haram.
