A suicide bomb attack killed 47 students and injured 79 others on Monday as they gathered for morning assembly at their school in northeast Nigeria, a massacre likely carried out by Boko Haram, police told AFP.

"There was an explosion detonated by a suicide bomber," national police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu said, referring to the attack in Potiskum in Yobe state.

"We have 47 dead and 79 injured," he added, saying that the Islamist extremists were believed to be responsible.
