ISIS video shows deadly ambush on American soldiers in Niger

• http://www.nydailynews.com, BY Christopher Brennan

The clip appeared to come from the helmet of one of the soldiers killed last October, when 11 Special Forces members and around 30 Nigerien soldiers were ambushed in the west African country.

Though many Americans may not have been aware that the U.S. had a military presence in Niger, Army staff sergeants Bryan Black, Jeremiah Johnson, La David Johnson and Dustin Wright were killed in the fight, along with militants and five Nigerien soldiers.

The U.S. military has yet to release its account of what happened, though is likely to do so this week, CBS News reported.

Wright and La David Johnson's loved ones, whose became involved in a public argument over an alleged callous phone call from President Trump, have asked questions about what mistakes may have led to the deaths.
