Boko Haram fighters killed 13 people in an attack on Malari village in northeast Nigeria's restive Borno state early on Sunday, witnesses said.

Local farmer Moha Saleh said 27 people, including women and children, were also injured in the attack, which began when the Islamist militants stormed the village at around 01:00.

"They also set many houses ablaze after accusing us of telling soldiers their whereabouts," he told AFP.

Local resident Goni Musa, a vigilante who fights against Boko Haram alongside the Nigerian military, gave the same death toll.

"They burnt down houses and shops before they left, yelling 'Allahu Akbar' [God is great]. Our terrorised women and children fled into the bush and returned to Maiduguri this morning," he added.

Maiduguri, the biggest town in northeast Nigeria, is some 20km north of Malari.
