Two Italian priests and a Canadian nun have been kidnapped by unidentified gunmen in Cameroon, Italy's foreign ministry and media reports say.
Gunmen ransacked the building in the north-west of the country before taking the hostages, Italy's Ansa agency said.

The latest attack took place in the district of Maroua in the early hours of Saturday morning.
