Nigerian military jet crashes, killing pilot

A Nigerian Air Force spokesman says a fighter jet has crashed near the northern city of Kano, killing the pilot.
Air Commodore Yusuf Anas told The Associated Press that the Chinese-made F7 fighter crashed near Kano's airport. Anas said the pilot died in the crash.
Anas said he had no other immediate details.
Oil-rich Nigeria has a large military, though mechanical issues often plague the country's aircraft.
