16 Killed at Baby-Naming Ceremony in Nigeria

Gunmen believed to be Fulani herdsmen reportedly opened fire on guests as they celebrated with a family and their newborn in Numa village in Nasarawa State. The attack follows the rape and subsequent death of a teenager that sparked a confrontation between the herdsmen and the residents of the area.
