Nigeria army 'repels' attack by IS-linked militants

Nigeria's army says it has regained "full control" of a town stormed by fighters linked to the militant Islamic State (IS) group on Tuesday.
Hundreds of residents, who had just returned to their homes after fleeing attacks, were abducted by fighters of the Islamic State West Africa Province (Iswap) during the raid on Kukawa town in north-eastern Nigeria, AFP news agency quoted locals and militia sources as saying.
