Moderate Muslims Kill 58 Christians In Nigeria

“Raids and reprisal attacks have left 58 people dead in Christian villages near a Nigerian city where authorities have struggled to contain religious violence, authorities said Sunday.

Assailants launched “sophisticated attacks” on several villages near Jos early Saturday, said Mustapha Salisu, spokesman for a special taskforce made up of policemen and soldiers deployed in the area to curb years of violence.

“They came in hundreds,” said Salisu, “Some had [police] uniforms and some even had bulletproof vests.”
