43 killed in Nigeria in school attack

KANO: Militants killed 43 people on Tuesday in an attack on secondary school students as they slept in the latest school massacre to hit Nigeria’s troubled northeast.

Nigeria meanwhile issued an appeal to France and Abuja’s Francophone neighbours, especially Cameroon, to help it in the battle against militants, two days before a planned visit from French President Francois Hollande.

The raid at 2:00 am targeted the Federal Government College in the town of Buni Yadi in Yobe state and bore the hallmarks of a similar attack last September in which 40 died.

The attackers reportedly hurled explosives into student residential buildings, sprayed gunfire into rooms and hacked a number of students to death.
