Gunmen in north-eastern Nigeria have killed more than 30 people in a attack on a wedding convoy.

It happened on a notoriously dangerous stretch of road between Bama and Banki in Borno State, east of the regional capital Maiduguri.

The groom was reportedly amongst the victims.

The Islamist militant group Boko Haram has carried out frequent attacks in the area despite a state of emergency declared in north-east Nigeria in May.
