Gunmen in Nigeria are reported to have abducted an unknown number of passengers from a train in the northern part of Kaduna state.
The gang mined the track between the capital Abuja and Kaduna city and forced the evening train to a halt.
Many of the nearly 1,000 passengers on board took shelter as shots were fired.
One man was reported to have been killed after the gunmen boarded the train.
The security forces have now intervened and taken those injured to the hospital.
Following increased attacks and kidnappings on the main road between Abuja and Kaduna, many travellers now prefer to travel by train.
This is the second time the railway has been attacked in the last six months.
