RELIGIOUS RIOT: Soldiers patrol Niger towns

Armed troops are patrolling Pandongari in Niger state, after a religious riot in which three people were killed.

The army has already imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew in the town, to contain the spread of the riot, which began after a mob killed a man for allegedly posting what they regarded as a blasphemous statement about the holy prophet Mohammed..

Army Assistant Spokesman, Major N. Agwu, said the curfew was imposed after the rioters embarked on violent attacks, looting of shops and blocking the Lagos-Kaduna highway passing through the town.
