Boko Haram: 70 bodies found in north-eastern Nigeria

At least 70 bodies have been found dumped outside the town of Damasak in north-eastern Nigeria, after it was recaptured from Boko Haram militants.

Troops from Niger and Chad seized Damasak on Saturday, ending months of control by the Islamist militants.
