Image result for Super Tucano A-29 planesThe U.S. will be selling to Nigeria,12 Super Tucano A-29 planes and weapons worth $593 million, needed for the fight against the militant group, Boko Haram.

The sale, which includes thousands of bombs and rockets was originally agreed to by former President Barack Obama’s administration.

The deal was delayed after incidents including the Nigerian Air Force’s bombing of a refugee camp in January that killed 90 to 170 civilians but now, President Donald Trump says he plans to proceed with foreign defence sales delayed under Obama by human rights concerns.

The contract will require U.S. Government or private contractors to provide training and support, and will include instruction on rules of engagement and human rights to help prevent civilian casualties.
