Chad's UN envoy says Boko Haram 'more dangerous' than IS

Ambassador Mahamat Cherif told reporters that a draft resolution circulated last week to the 15-member council had hit a wall over a key provision invoking chapter 7 of the UN charter. “I think Boko Haram is more dangerous than ISIS,” said Cherif, using the acronym for the Islamic State group sowing violence and fear in Syria and Iraq. Diplomats told AFP that Nigeria had balked at the provision, dealing a major setback to weeks of negotiations on the draft resolution that would also set up a trust fund to help finance the regional force’s operations.
