ABUJA - One hundred and ten girls remain unaccounted for following an attack on a school in the town of Dapchi in the northeastern Nigerian state of Yobe, the country's information ministry said on Sunday.

Insurgents believed to be from the Islamist militant group invaded the school on Monday and, out of 906 students, "110 have not been accounted for," information minister Lai Mohammed said in an emailed statement.
