MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP)—Assailants shot and stabbed to death at least 20 students in the second attack suspected to be carried out by Islamist extremists on colleges in Nigeria's troubled northeast in the last few days, authorities said Tuesday.
Some of the victims of Monday night's attack were shot and others were killed with knives just outside the Federal Polytechnic Mubi, a college in the town of Mubi, said a rescue official who is not allowed to speak to press on the issue. He said that at least 20 corpses had been found.
