Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
Nigerian military officials say that close to 100 terrorists were killed after a major clash between troops and Islamic terrorists in Yobe state.
The military spokesman said that the attack from the Islamic terror group Boko Haram lasted over five hours and was the result of a major government action against terrorist safe houses. Sources tell Reuters that both planes and ground forces were used in the raids.
The military says that 95 terrorists were killed along with 23 soldiers and eight police officers. However, local hospital officials put the total of military fatalities at 35.
Boko Haram also lost 37 terrorists in a military raid last week in Borno. The assaults are part of the state of emergency declaration made in May.
