People 'shot dead' in Lagos, Nigeria

A number of people taking part in a protest against police brutality have reportedly been shot dead or injured in Nigeria's biggest city, Lagos.

Witnesses said up to 12 people were killed and others wounded when soldiers opened fire. Amnesty International said it had "credible reports" of deaths.

The state governor, however, said there had been no fatalities, although about 25 people had been wounded.
