"150 Muslims killed, rights group says

JOS - An international human rights group is calling on Nigerian officials to investigate reports that at least 150 Muslims were killed in a central Nigerian town. Human Rights Watch yesterday cited reports of a massacre in a town south of Jos, where fighting broke out between Christians and Muslims about a week ago. Witnesses said that armed men attacked on Tuesday and that some of the victims were burned alive. One official said that the bodies of 22 young children had been recovered.
