Nigeria: Ethnic Clashes Leave 27 Dead

Clashes between rival ethnic groups in central Nigeria killed at least 27 people on Wednesday, witnesses said, in a region straddling the country’s largely Christian south and mostly Muslim north that is prone to civil unrest. Witnesses said armed Fulani herdsmen attacked the villages of Da Jak and Attakar in Plateau State in the early hours, spraying residents with automatic gunfire and setting houses on fire. The military declined to comment, but a Plateau State legislator, Daniel Dem, said dozens had been killed.
