Six people were killed in recent clashes between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria.
Authorities said the violence in the Plateau State of the country began when an attack on Muslim cattle herders left three people dead. That incident sparked more violence in the city of Jos that led to the deaths of three more.
Jos has been the focal point of religious violence in Nigeria's "middle belt," where dozens of ethnic groups fight for control of fertile lands.
Politics, jobs, and land have often been the driving force behind religious violence.
More than 500 people have died in Muslim-Christian violence in Jos so far this year.
