Nigerian troops claim to have they have killed 14 suspected members of the Islamist rebel group Boko Haram.

The attack took place in a raid on a building in the northern city of Kano.

A soldier was killed in the raid, and a potential suicide bomber was arrested in a car laden with explosives, a military spokesman said.

Security had been increased due to fears for the safety of Christians over Easter.
