Mass burial after army-Shiite clash in northern Nigeria

Clashes broke out between the Nigerian army and supporters of a Shiite cleric in December last year after the army accused supporters of Ibrahim Zakzaky, who heads the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) group, of trying to kill the chief of army staffNearly 350 dead bodies were buried in a mass grave in northern Nigeria after clashes between the army and supporters of a Shiite cleric, a public official has told an inquiry into the unrest. The testimony on Monday from Muhammad Namadi Musa, the director-general of the Kaduna State religious affairs office, lends weight to claims that at least 300 people were killed in the violence in December last year. Amnesty International, which has previously said “hundreds” were killed, said the revelation was “an important first step in bringing all those suspected of criminal responsibility” to trial.
