Radical Islamic jihadists in Nigeria are launching a new terror campaign that targets the kidnapping of foreigners.
The BBC News reports that, "Nigerian militant group Ansaru says it kidnapped seven foreign workers in a raid that saw a security guard killed."
The workers originated from Italy, Great Britain, Greece and Lebanon, and are thought to be held after the attack in the northern state of Bauchi.
According to the BBC, “they were working on a construction project when the militants attacked on Sunday, reports say.”
The Islamist organization, Ansaru, emerged last June and had recently carried out a raid and kidnapped a French national.
