Unidentified gunmen killed 38 people, mostly women and children, in raids on two villages in northern Nigeria's Kaduna state, an area plagued by years of sectarian conflict, officials said Tuesday.
A 24-hour curfew has been declared in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna, following the Sunday morning bombing of churches and reprisal attacks, which reportedly left over a dozen dead and scores of others injured.
At least 36 people have died and several wounded in a car bomb attack outside a church in Kaduna on Easter Sunday. The explosion involved at least a car driven by a suicide bomber. Officials are uncertain whether other cars were involved in the attack.
