The UN Security Council has urged central African countries to boost plans for a multinational force to fight Boko Haram Takfiri group, which has seized control over an alarming amount of territory in Nigeria and stepped up cross-border raids in neighboring Cameroon.

The council issued a 13-point statement on Monday strongly condemning attacks by Boko Haram terrorists, in particular those involving children used as suicide bombers, and demanded an end to the violence, Aljazeera reported.

On the eve of a key meeting in Niger of regional leaders, the 15-member council urged Nigeria's neighbors to advance planning for the deployment a multinational task force to drive out Boko Haram.

Chad is set to contribute a sizeable contingent to the force along with Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria and Benin.
