Moderate Muslim Gunmen Slaughter 30 Christians In Nigeria

(Reuters) – Gunmen killed 30 people in a village in central Nigeria on Monday, officials said, in a religiously-mixed region with a long history of ethnic and communal violence.

Gunmen stormed the Christian Shonong village in the Riyom local government area in the early hours, opening fire on residents and torching dozens of houses to the ground, a member of the state house of assembly Daniel Dem told Reuters.
