Witnesses and the military say Nigerian security forces have killed and injured an unknown number of people in the oil-producing south where militant attacks have halved petroleum production.

The military said it attacked speedboats and killed and injured some militants Sunday. A community group said the soldiers fired Saturday on a speedboat that was traveling to Oporoza to evacuate civilians wounded in the military's siege of the town.
