The UN says more than 30,000 people have fled a town in north-east Nigeria fearing renewed attacks by Islamist militants.

The UN says they left the town of Rann over the weekend and crossed into Cameroon, after soldiers from a regional military force withdrew from the area.

Boko Haram jihadists have repeatedly attacked Rann where a military base was overrun last month.

Residents in Borno State say Boko Haram has recently started to threaten new areas, which has triggered panic and caused thousands to flee.

Critics accuse the Nigerian government of playing down the scale of the conflict, which has lasted for more than a decade.
