Medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said it had suspended work in the Nigerian town Rann and evacuated national and international staff after a deadly raid.



Suspected Boko Haram militants killed at least 11 people including three aid workers in an attack on a military barracks in north-eastern Borno state on Thursday, according to two security reports.
“Following a violent attack in Rann, Borno state, on Thursday March 1, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) suspended medical activities in the town and evacuated 22 national and international staff,” MSF said in a statement.
“It is unclear how many people were killed and injured but before leaving, MSF medical staff treated nine wounded patients,” it added.
