Nigeria Rescue, Eight members of a militant Islamist group were shot dead during a failed mission to rescue a British engineer and his Italian colleague they had taken hostage in Nigeria, Sky sources say.
More details are now emerging of the Special Forces operation during which Christopher McMa**s and Franco Lamolinara apparently died at the hands of Boko Haram kidnappers – who are said to have been backed by al Qaeda.

The attempt to free Mr McMa**s, who comes from northwest England, and Mr Lamolinara, saw UK Special Forces working with their Nigerian counterparts, who helped the British team get close to the target building.
Sky sources said a Nigerian armoured personnel carrier rammed its way into the building where the hostages were being held.
