Nigerian Taliban strikes

RADICAL Islamists yesterday torched a police headquarters, a church and a Customs office in northern Nigeria, as the death toll in weekend religious clashes climbed to 150.

A BBC reporter counted 100 bodies, mostly of the Taliban-styled militants, near the police headquarters in Maiduguri, Borno state, where hundreds are fleeing their homes.

Nigerian police chief Ogbonna Onovo said earlier that five of his officers and 65 of the militants had been killed in the neighbouring states of Bauchi and Yobe.

Please pray for our Nigerian friends.
