The training began October 19 in Agadez, the largest city in central Niger.

More training will follow for armies in Cameroon, Nigeria and Chad, a U.S. military official told the VOA.

美国军方一位官员对美国之音表示,紧接着还会对喀麦隆、尼日利亚和乍得的军队进行培训。

The Niger government asked for the training, Africa Command spokesman Chuck Prichard told VOA.

非洲司令部发言人查克·普里查德(Chuck Prichard)对美国之音表示,是尼日尔政府要求进行这次培训。

The training provides benefits to the African nations and the United States, said Major General Daryl Williams, commander of U.S. Army Africa.

News of the U.S. training mission that targets Boko Haram comes after some rare good news in the fight against the militant group.
