Nigeria's northeasterly Borno state has ordered all of its schools to shut to protect children after Islamists killed dozens of pupils in an attack last month, an official from the state Education Ministry and several parents said on Friday.Security officials said the militant Boko Haram group had shot or burned to death at least 29 pupils in a boarding school in northeast Nigeria, although a journalist who counted bodies in the morgue after the attack put the figure at 59 .The attack was not in Borno but in the village of Buni Ladi in neighbouring Yobe state. Schools finished one term early last year after 22 students were killed in the village of Mamudo in Yobe state.
