Nigerian Soldiers Killed Hundreds of Shias

Soldiers killed hundreds of Shia Muslims this weekend after their group stoned the convoy of Nigeria’s army chief, the Shia Islamic Movement and witnesses said Monday. Other reports put the number of dead at about 20.
The dead from the military raids include the wife and two sons of the movement’s leader, Ibraheem Zakzaky.
Zeenah Ibrahim, the wife, was shot and killed on Sunday, witnesses said, hours after she called The Associated Press to report that soldiers were besieging her home in a “pre-planned attack to assassinate the sheikh,” her husband.
The killings happened in Zaria, a town in northern Nigeria.
