Christians die as gunmen attack church
Gunmen killed at least 15 people and wounded many more yesterday in an attack on a university theatre used by Christian worshippers in Nigeria's northern city of Kano.
It was the latest in a spate of attacks on churches and on Christian holidays in the north of the country, which Nigerian authorities and diplomats believe are part of an attempt to stoke a religious conflict.
Security sources said there was sporadic gunfire in other parts of the city which they believe was from attackers who were fleeing from the army at the university.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but radical Islamist sect Boko Haram has killed hundreds in attacks this year.
