Sectarian violence kills 100 people in Nigeria

Jun 20, 2012 12:00 AM

About 100 people, including security officers, have been killed in sectarian violence that has engulfed Nigeria's north-central flashpoint state of Kaduna.
A rescue services official said that over 98 people have died since after triple church bombings sparked violent attacks on Muslims in Kaduna.

Two churches were bombed in the city of Zaria and another in the city of Kaduna, killing 19 people.
After the bombings, Christian mobs attacked people looking like Muslims, leaving at least 79 people dead.

Banks and offices remained closed as rescuers searched streets looking for the bodies of the people killed by the armed Christian gangsters.
In addition, the Christian attackers set mosques on fire and torched petrol stations, dozens of vehicles, and shops.
