UNITED NATIONS - Nigeria has formally asked the UN Security Council al-Qaida sanctions committee to blacklist the Islamist militant group Boko Haram after the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls, a UN diplomat said on Tuesday.

If there are no objections from the 15-member council committee, which operates by consensus, Boko Haram will be sanctioned at 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT) on Thursday, the diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
