DAMATURU, Nigeria - Gunmen killed at least 26 people on Sunday in an attack on a college in northeast Nigeria, a hospital source said, in a region where Islamist militants have targeted schools and universities before.

Gunmen stormed the College of Agriculture in Yobe state and shot students as they slept in the early hours of Sunday, state police commissioner Sanusi Rufai said.

A hospital source in the Yobe state capital Damaturu, who asked not to be named, said 26 bodies had been brought in from the scene of the attack.
