Three United States Army Special Forces were killed and two were wounded on Wednesday in an ambush in Niger  with troops from that nation in northwestern Africa, reports say.

Several Nigerien soldiers are also said to have died in the attack.

U.S. Africa Command said the patrol had come under “hostile fire” and was working to confirm the details.

The New York Times said they were the first American casualties to die from hostile fire since the U.S. Africa Command deployed in Niger.
