30 feared dead in fresh crisis in Taraba State

A funeral march in the small town of Wukari, Nigeria turned into a violent clash between Hausa and Fulani settlers, who tend to be Muslim, and Jukun, who are mostly Christian. At least 30 were killed, and many houses burned.
Members of the Jukun ethnic group were marching through the small commercial town of Wukari to a funeral when an argument broke out with local Hausa and Fulani youths, which quickly degenerated into pitched battles with guns and machetes. Attackers also set fire to around 30 houses, police said.
