Fox News host Sean Hannity got into a fiery exchange Wednesday night with radical British imam Anjem Choudary.

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, who has previously expressed support for IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, did not give further details, leading to debate about exactly what he meant. Boko Haram in comparison is thought to be a modestly-funded local uprising made up of poor youths with little tactical training.
