Mosque attack: Nigerian president vows to track perpetrators

  • Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s president, has called upon the nation to confront “the common enemy” after a deadly attack that killed dozens of people in a mosque in Kano.

    Jonathan has ordered “a full-scale investigation” and vowed to “leave no stone unturned” to find the perpetrators.  

    Officials have said that 35 people were killed in the bomb and gun attack at the northern city’s Central Mosque, but other reports indicate that the toll could be much higher.

    Between 250 and 400 people are believed to have been injured in the attack.
