NIGERIA ‘BOKO HARAM’ GUNMEN KILL 44 AT MOSQUE


At least 44 worshipers have been shot dead at a mosque in north-eastern Nigeria, officials in Borno state say.
The killings took place during dawn prayers on Sunday, although news only emerged on Monday, as communications are disrupted by a state of emergency.
The attack occurred in the town of Konduga, 35km (22 miles) from the state capital, Maiduguri.
The gunmen are suspected of being from the Islamist group Boko Haram, which has killed thousands since 2009. Twelve further civilians were killed at Ngom village, closer to Maiduguri, reports say.
A member of a civilian vigilante group told the Associated Press that four of their number were killed when they responded to calls for help in Konduga.
Several such groups have been set up since the emergency was declared in Borno and two neighbouring states in May.
BBC Nigeria correspondent Will Ross says the gunmen may have attacked the mosque in the belief that some of the vigilantes were praying there.
