23 killed by Boko Haram, leader held

At least 23 people were killed when suspected militants of radical Islamic sect Boko Haram attacked a northern Nigerian city with rocket launchers and grenades, even as one of the group's leaders was captured from the house of a senator.

Hospital sources, where some of the bodies were taken, confirmed that 20 corpses were brought to their morgue even as residents said they had buried three bodies already.
The militants attacked the city with rocket launchers, grenades, guns and machetes and set ablaze an Islamic school and two other public schools. Residents said many corpses were littered along the streets after the attack.
