"The abductions of more than 200 girls caused international outrage."
London, May 21 - At least 17 people were killed Wednesday in an attack by alleged Boko Haram militants in Nigeria, media reported.

The attack on a village in northeast Nigeria, close to where hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted last month, came a day after 118 people died in a twin bomb attack in the central city of Jos, BBC reported.

Boko Haram fighters reportedly spent hours killing and looting in the village of Alagarno.

Alagarno is near Chibok, from where the schoolgirls were abducted last month.

The abductions of more than 200 girls caused international outrage.

The incident has put pressure on the Nigerian authorities to deal with the threat from the Boko Haram.
