Aid workers killed in Nigeria


Three aid workers were killed in the north-eastern Nigerian town Rann during an attack by militants on a military facility, a United Nations spokeswoman said.

A fourth aid worker may also have been killed and another was feared abducted, the spokeswoman said. A separate UN source said the attack was likely to have been carried out by jihadist group Boko Haram.

All the aid workers were Nigerian nationals, the spokeswoman said.
