500 people die in sectarian clashes in Nigeria

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 10.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
The death toll in Sunday's attacks by Muslims on Christians in central Nigeria has risen to 500, including women and children.

Muslims armed with guns and machetes assaulted 3 predominantly Christian villages in the suburbs of the city of Jos. The assailants set fire to houses before attacking fleeing villagers with machetes.

Nigerian police have arrested 95 people on suspicion of being involved in the assault and have sent in security forces for fear of reprisal by Christians.

The northern part of the country is predominantly Muslim, while Christians mainly live in the southern area. Violence between the two groups in central Nigeria has recently been escalating.

In January, about 300 people, most of them Muslims, were killed in clashes between the two groups.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon told reporters on Monday that he is deeply concerned about the increase in inter-religious violence and the loss of life.

He urged the country's political and religious leaders to work together to resolve the crisis.
