(LEAD) Seoul sees little chance that Korean doctors killed in Nigeria
SEOUL, Feb. 10 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's foreign ministry said Sunday there is not a high chance that South Korean doctors were killed by gunmen in Nigeria, in response to mixed reports on the nationality of the slain.

The Associated Press reported that armed men killed three South Korean doctors and beheaded one of the physicians Saturday night in Potiskum, a town in Yobe state that has long been under attack by radical Islamic sect Boko Haram.
