Nigeria student attack: Relatives identify Yobe victims

There was no security protection at an agricultural college in north-east Nigeria where up to 50 students were shot dead as they slept on Sunday, authorities say.

The students were killed by suspected Islamist gunmen in their dormitory in Yobe state.

The government and military would work to increase protection in schools, regional official Abdullahi Bego told the BBC.
