At least 65 people were killed and several injured when Islamist militant group Boko Haram attacked Dalori village near Nigeria's northeastern city of Maiduguri on Saturday, reported Reuters. Security and medical officials said the militants opened fire on residents, torched houses and three suicide bombers blew themselves up in the third attack by the group this week.

In neighbouring Adamawa state, a suicide bomber believed to be a Boko Haram militant killed about 10 people on Friday and at least 12 were killed on Wednesday in an attack on the Borno state village of Chibok, from where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted in 2014.
