Jos, NIGERIA

Destroyed buildings in the city of Jos. Continued violence between Christians and Muslims has torn the city of Jos apart. Christian youth attacked Muslims of the Islamic Izala sect, who held a prayer service in the open air in an area surrounded by Christian neighbourhoods, to mark the end of the Ramadan. The Izala members fled in panic, leaving at least two deaths, the Christian youth on their heels. Dozens of parked cars were set on fire. This was followed by retaliation by Muslims on shops of Christian traders, which resulted in even more deaths.
