Updated on

At least 29 people were killed by suspected Islamist insurgents in northeastern Nigeria on Monday, highlighting the continuing danger in areas the military said it had secured.

The militants invaded Dille and its surrounding villages in the southern part of Borno state at about 1 p.m. in a convoy of five pickup trucks and motorcycles, said Abubakar Ishaq, a resident who escaped the attack.
