In a recording released on twitter, Boko Haram's leader Abubakar Shekau has pledged his loyalty to Islamic State, saying, "We announce our allegiance to the caliph... and will hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity. "
EJ Hogendoorn of the International Crisis Group regularly travels to Nigeria to report on Boko Haram – he says corruption and poverty in Nigeria have made people more sympathetic to the group's call for an Islamic state.

11:05 Marty Duda's artist of the week: Poco
Rising out of the ashes of The Buffalo Springfield, Poco formed in the late 60s and helped usher in country-rock. Bass player Timothy B. Schmitt went on to join up with the Eagles, who are in NZ this weekend. Also, just to make things confusing, original Eagles bassist Randy Meisner was also the original bass player for Poco… although he didn’t stick around long. Poco seemed like one of those bands that never would live up to their potential, and it wasn’t until Richie Furay and Jim Messina left the group that their fortunes changed. By then they were led by Rusty Young and Paul Cotton and they scored several sizable hits in the mid to late 70s. The band went through many personnel changes, with members coming and going at a dizzying rate. The band finally retired in 2013, leaving a legacy that establishes them as one of the premiere country-rock acts alongside The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Eagles.
