Nigerian Massacre

On March 7, 500 Christians near Jos, Nigeria were killed, churches and 75 houses were also burned. State Information Commissioner Gregory Yenlong said that people were hacked with axes, daggers and cutlasses after reportedly being snared in animal traps. Earlier this year 300 Christians were killed in the same region. The Australian Christian Lobby called on the Federal Government to register its concern over the massacre.
