A group of 30 gunmen who stormed a residence in northern Nigeria where expatriate workers were staying kidnapped a French citizen after killing two people, police said Thursday.

"I can confirm the abduction of a French national," the Katsina state police chief, Abdullahi Magaji, told AFP. "The kidnappers numbering about 30 stormed the residence where the engineers of (French company) Vergnet were staying," he said, adding that a security guard and a neighbour were shot dead in the attack.
