More Violence in Nigeria...

Villagers in Dogo Nahawa, just south of the city of Jos, said Hausa-Fulani herders from the surrounding hills attacked at about 3 am (0200 GMT), shooting into the air before slashing those who came out of their homes with machetes.
Yemi Kosoko, a reporter with the independent Nigerian news network Channels, told The Associated Press on Sunday that most of the bodies appeared to be women and children killed by blows from machetes wielded by gangs burning down villages.
