The U.S. State Department said Wednesday it named Nigerian militant group Boko Haram and a splinter group called Ansaru as foreign terror organizations.
Boko Haram has links to al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the State Department said in a statement. The group is responsible for thousands of deaths in northeast and central Nigeria over the last several years, including targeted killings of civilians, it said.

The U.S. assets and property of both groups was frozen as a result of the designations, and it is now illegal to transact with or support them.
