Government troops cornered and fought with a large group of armed Islamic radicals who had entered the country from Niger. After two days of fighting, 43 Islamic radicals were killed (including nine Algerians, plus others from Niger, Nigeria and Mali.) Five of the Islamic radicals were captured, including one Chadian. Several trucks, some equipped with machine-guns, were captured, as well as other weapons and satellite phones. An unknown number of the  Islamic radicals escaped and are being tracked and pursued. The army lost three dead and 18 wounded.

Christmas is around the corner. StrategyPage needs your help to make it a merry one for our content elves. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, the content elves may recieve no gifts from Santa Dunnigan.

What can you do to help the content elves have a merry Christmas? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
