U.S. security escorts were delaying handing over a U.S. Marine convicted of killing a transgender woman to Philippine police who had been ordered to bring him to the national penitentiary to serve his sentence, a lawyer for the victim said on Tuesday. The Olongapo City regional trial court found Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton guilty of homicide, jailing him for six to 12 years in a case that has reignited debate over the American military presence in the country. The court ordered that Pemberton be temporarily held in the national penitentiary in Muntinlupa, south of the capital, until the Philippines and U.S. government agree on where he should serve his sentence as prescribed under a visiting forces agreement.

Militants from the Islamist group Boko Haram killed four people and injured two others in an attack on a village in southern Niger, a regional official said on state television late on Monday. The group has sought to carve out an emirate based on a severe interpretation of Islamic law in northeastern Nigeria and has also carried out numerous attacks across the border in neighbouring countries, including Niger. Members of Boko Haram, armed with Kalashnikovs, attacked the village in the southern region of Diffa over the weekend.

US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton (centre) is led into court during his murder trial in Olongapo City, on December 1, 2015A Philippine court on Tuesday convicted a US Marine of killing a Filipina transgender woman in a red light district, in a case that reignited long-simmering anti-American sentiment in the country. Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton was convicted of homicide for the killing of Jennifer Laude in a motel in October 2014, after they met in a bar following joint US-Philippine military exercises near the city of Olongapo. Judge Roline Jinez Jabalde sentenced Pemberton to six to 12 years in jail -- after the charge was reduced from murder which carries a heavier penalty -- citing mitigating circumstances, including the fact that Laude had not revealed her gender identity.
