Ten more Nigerian Christians slain5 December 2012
Suspected Islamist fighters went on the rampage in northeast Nigeria last Saturday night, killing 10 Christians with guns and machetes and burning down their houses.
The attack happened at a remote village in Borno state, close to the heart of an insurgency led by Islamist sect Boko Haram.
In a separate incident on Sunday, gunmen attacked government targets and churches near the border with Cameroon, killing five policemen. On Tuesday Christians were reported to be streaming out of Borno's capital, Maiduguri.
Churches were being boarded up and were heavily guarded by soldiers and police.
Boko Haram, which wants to carve out an Islamic state in northern Nigeria, has killed around 3,000 people since it intensified its insurgency in 2010.
