Gunmen in Nigeria have kidnapped at least 140 schoolchildren in the north-west of the country, police say.
At least eight people were also abducted from the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre in Zaria early on Sunday morning.
Two nurses and a 12-month-old child were among those seized, said a hospital worker.
There has been a recent spate of abductions from schools and universities for ransom.
