Attackers have stormed a church service in a town in Nigeria's volatile northeast and killed 15 people in the latest such violence targeting Christians in recent days, an official said on Monday.

“We received information from our personnel in Chibok that some attackers stormed a church during Sunday service yesterday and killed 15 people,” Mohammed Kanar, regional coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency, told AFP. Details were still being confirmed from the remote area, but it appeared the victims had been shot, he said. - Sapa-AFP
