Gunmen attack Nigeria train with nearly 1,000 people

A train travelling to Kaduna was attacked last month

Gunmen in Nigeria are reported to have abducted an unknown number of passengers from a train in the northern Kaduna state.

The gang mined the track between the capital, Abuja, and Kaduna city and forced the evening train to a halt.

Many of the nearly 1,000 passengers on board took shelter as shots were fired.

One man is reported to have been killed after the gunmen boarded the train.

The security forces have now intervened and taken those injured to hospital.
