Muslim Killings in Nigeria Deplored

Iran’s Foreign Ministry deplored as unacceptable the killing of Nigerian Muslims by the police in the African country’s northern state of Kano.
“The recurrent scene of cruel massacre of Muslims in a peaceful religious procession without any threat and violence is worrying and unacceptable,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Tuesday, Tasnim News Agency.
He called on the Nigerian government to remain vigilant in the face of violence and divisive factors, urging serious efforts to prevent such crimes against Muslims.
At least 50 people were killed and several others wounded in an attack by the Nigerian police on a religious procession of Shia Muslims in Kano on Monday.
The demonstrators were preparing themselves for the upcoming Arbaeen mourning rituals, which mark the end of 40 days of commemorating the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PBUH), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
