Uneasy calm in Nigerian state amid curfew

Strict curfew in place across northern Kaduna state after church attacks, amid fears of retaliatory violence.

    Days after fighting between Christian and Muslim youths in northern Nigeria, many of those wounded in the bombing of three churches are still in hospital.

    Things have calmed down in many parts of Kaduna, but a strict curfew remains in place throughout the state.

    Some feel curfews will not address the dangers posed by the Islamist sect Boko Haram, and the retaliatory violence that sometimes follows the group’s attacks.
