Attackers Kill Students in Northeast Nigeria

Assailants shot or stabbed to death at least 25 people in the second attack near colleges in Nigeria's troubled northeast in the last few days, officials said Tuesday.

Authorities believe students may have been behind the attacks in Mubi, but that town and the surrounding region also have suffered from a spate of killings by the Boko Haram radical Islamist sect.

The latest attack occurred between 10 p.m. Monday and 3 a.m. Tuesday when assailants invaded student accommodations outside the campus of the Federal Polytechnic Mubi college, said one of its students, Danjuma Aiso.
