Ad Feedback

Islamic terrorists are suspected in the murders of a pastor, his son, and a village chief in northeast Nigeria.

Police say the attackers used explosives to torch the church and five homes.

It happened in Yobe State where the radical Muslim group Boko Haram is waging war on Christians and the government to establish an Islamic state. In July they killed 29 students, burning some alive.

Because of the Islamic uprising, Yobe has been put under a military state of emergency.

More than 17,000 people in northern Nigeria have died in the uprising since 2010.
