Attack kills 16 in Nigeria:


Gunmen killed at least 16 people during an attack in northwest Nigeria, the government said Sunday. The assailants stormed the Zangon Kataf Local Government Area in Kaduna state and opened fire Saturday after a confrontat­ion with police at a checkpoint, a spokespers­on for the local government said. The attackers were ethnic Fulani, a group of mostly nomadic pastoralis­ts who have been embroiled in a long conflict with farmers over limited access to water and land, Ephraim said.
