Nigeria Islamists Ansaru claim Bauchi Setraco seizures

Nigerian militant group Ansaru says it kidnapped seven foreign workers in a raid that saw a security guard killed.

Italian, Filipino, British, Greek and Lebanese workers are thought to be among those being held after the attack in the northern state of Bauchi.

They were working on a construction project when the militants attacked on Sunday.
