Four villages in north-eastern Nigeria have been attacked by suspected Boko Haram militants who targeted at least one church.

Some unconfirmed reports say 40 civilians and 6 insurgents were killed as militants and vigilantes clashed.

It is the latest assault on villages near Chibok, the town where more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted in April.

Hundreds of villagers have been killed in similar attacks in the region by Boko Haram in recent months.

A state of emergency is in force in northern Nigeria because of the group's increasingly violent campaign to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state.
