At least 46 students have been killed by a suicide bomber at a school assembly in the north-eastern Nigerian town of Potiskum.

A suicide bomber dressed as a student is believed to have caused the blast at the boys' school in Yobe state .

Police suggested the militant group Boko Haram carried out the attack.

Yobe state's governor has shut all public schools around Potiskum and criticised the government for not tackling the group.

Boko Haram has targeted schools during a deadly five-year insurgency aimed at establishing an Islamic state.
