Islamic radicals kill 15 in Nigeria church attack

Islamic radicals kill 15 in Nigeria church attack

15 Christians were shot inside a church during Sunday’s service, the latest in a series of attacks in the northeastern part of the country.

A group of Islamic radicals armed with guns, machetes and explosives raided the village of Chibok, five days after six Christians were killed during a Christmas service in the village of Jiri.

Attacks on Christian churches are normally the work of Boko Haram militants active in the country’s Moslem populated north.

The group rejects any western influence and demands the introduction of Sharia law.
