At least 56 people have been killed in a double suicide bombing at a camp sheltering people displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency in north-east Nigeria.

The bombers, both female, detonated their explosives while the camp's residents were queuing for rations.

The victims, at the Dikwa camp in Borno state, were mostly women and children.

Islamist Boko Haram militants have been attacking civilian targets as the Nigerian military seeks to wrest territory from their control.

The group's six-year insurgency has killed some 20,000 people and driven more than two million people from their homes.

The camp at Dikwa is reportedly home to about 50,000 people displaced by the violence, reportedly.
