Local Islamists and Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked a Christian community in Kaduna, Nigeria, on Dec. 19, killing five people and wounding six, just nine days after a deadly assault on a nearby Christian community, Compass Direct News reports. The Muslim assailants, brandishing firearms and machetes, stormed the Christian area of Ungwan Rami village at 10 p.m., in similar fashion to other recent attacks. The state has suffered a largely increased number of attacks in recent months. "As Christians, we have been living peacefully with these Muslims, but we do not understand why they should now attack us," said Asabe Bulus, whose parents were killed in a November attack by Fulanis.
