DAMATURU, Nigeria — Yobe state governor’s spokesman says soldiers guarding a checkpoint near a government school mysteriously withdrew hours before a pre-dawn attack in which suspected Islamic extremists killed at least 29 students.

A teacher said the militants struck before dawn today and locked the door of a dormitory where male students were sleeping and then set it ablaze, slitting the throats of students who tried to clamber out of windows and gunning down those who ran away. He said some students were burned alive.
