Forces from Niger and Chad have launched a ground and air offensive against militant group Boko Haram in north-eastern Nigeria.

The campaign is said to be targeting militants in Borno state.

It came as Nigerian officials dismissed Boko Haram's pledge of allegiance to Islamic State as a reaction to military pressure from Nigeria and its allies.

The pledge was posted online yesterday in an audio message by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau.
