Nigeria Steps Up Efforts To Rescue 300 Abducted Pupils

Nigerian authorities are stepping up efforts to rescue more than 300 students abducted by armed men who raided their hostels.

Gunmen on motorcycles stormed the Government Science School in Kankara late on Friday and engaged security forces in a fierce gun battle, forcing hundreds of students to flee and hide in surrounding bushes and forest.

State Governor Aminu Bello Masari, who visited the school on Saturday, said soldiers were working to locate and free the hostages.
