Boko Haram unrest: Nigerian militants 'kidnap 100 villagers'

Militants have stormed a remote village in north-eastern Nigeria, killing at least 33 people and kidnapping more than 100.

An eyewitness told the BBC that suspected Boko Haram militants seized young men, women and children from Gumsuri village in Borno state.

The attack happened on Sunday but news has only just emerged, after survivors reached the city of Maiduguri, as Will Ross reports from Lagos.
