Women and children are among dozens of people killed in a dawn raid on a village in central Nigeria.

Police say 45 people died in the attack by unidentified gunman on Egba village in Benue state.
 
But according to a local politician, 81 villagers had been killed by the attackers, who were all armed with Kalashnikov rifles.

Clashes between herdsmen from the Fulani ethnic group and farmers over grazing rights have plagued the region.
