Army crackdown on Nigeria's Islamist militants
The Nigerian military says it has launched an all-out assault on Islamist militants in the north-east of the country.
An army spokesman said jets and helicopter gunships had been used to attack several Boko Haram camps and a number of people had been killed.
States of emergency were declared this week in three states Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.
