    LAGOS, Nigeria, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Islamic Boko Haram extremists received funding from
    al-Qaida-linked groups as well as organizations based in Britain and Saudi Arabia, officials
    say.

    The Nigerian Tribune of Lagos reported the country's State Security Service had worked

    al-Qaida-linked organizations based in the Middle East as well as a Britain-based
    organization known as Al-Muntada Trust Fund, sources told the Tribune.
