The Pentagon has failed to meet a deadline set by a group of House lawmakers to explain the role of the U.S. military in a 2017 Nigerian airstrike on a displaced persons camp that killed more than 160 civilians, many of them children. Earlier this year, The Intercept reported the Pentagon provided Nigeria with intelligence ahead of the airstrike in the northeastern Borno state, which was supposed to target Boko Haram fighters. Human Rights Watch Nigeria condemned the Pentagon for its lack of transparency and accountability.
