Cape Town – At least 200 schoolgirls have reportedly been abducted in an attack on a school in north-east Nigeria.

A BBC report said the attackers were thought to be from the Islamist group, Boko Haram.

Speaking after the attack, a student said she had escaped after seeing her classmates jumping out of the back of a lorry, the report said.

The attack comes after a blast blamed on Boko Haram killed more than 70 people in Abuja on Monday.
