Text size Aa Aa

Fifteen people have been killed in an attack on a lecture theatre used by Christian worshippers in Nigeria’s second largest city, Kano.

Gunmen burst into the building, shot the victims and wounded many others, according to one eyewitness.

No one has claimed responsibility yet, but recent deadly attacks on Christians and churches have been carried out by Islamist group Boko Haram.
