At least 29 students have been killed after suspected Boko Haram militants attacked a boarding school in north-east Nigeria.

The remote school in Yobe state was attacked overnight, when students were in their dormitories.

All the victims were teenage boys and 11 others were seriously injured. Most of the school was burned to the ground.

Islamist militants have attacked dozens of schools in north-east Nigeria.

Last September, 40 students were killed at an agricultural college during another night-time raid.
