Amnesty: Babies Dying in Nigerian Military Detention

The United Nations Security Council has expressed concern over the terror group's links to ISIS and is calling the summit a "crucial initiative".

The rights group urged Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari to uphold his promise to investigate the deaths, release the children in detention and shut down Giwa barracks immediately.

Counterparts from Cameron, Chad, Benin and Niger will gather for the summit in Abuja beside the French President Francois Hollande, UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond and US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

"We've seen that Boko Haram's ability to communicate has become more effective", he said, adding, "They seem to have benefited from assistance from DAESH". Delegates hope to develop a strategy tackling "governance, security, development, and socio-economic and humanitarian dimensions of the crisis".

A regional offensive last year drove Boko Haram from much of the territory it held in northern Nigeria, undermining its seven-year campaign to carve out an Islamist caliphate.

Following the incident, a Downing Street spokesman said: "Both leaders have been invited to the summit because they are driving the fight against corruption in their countries".
