Kano - Gunmen attacked a church in northern Nigeria on Christmas Eve, killing six people, including the pastor, and setting the building on fire, residents and police said on Tuesday.

"A group of gunmen came into the village at midnight and went straight to the church... they opened fire on them, killing the pastor and five worshippers.

They then set fire to the church," said Usman Mansir, resident of Peri village, near Potiskum, the economic capital of Yobe state.

A senior police official in Yobe confirmed the details to AFP, but declined to be named.

    What does this accomplish except to foment more hatred, more division? Can we really have arrived in (almost) 2013 and still be using dumb-a** tactics to get a point across? So you don't like Christians. A lot of people don't like spinach or brussel sprouts either - don't see many stories about people shooting up fields of vegetables. They usually just say, no thanks, pass the plate to the person next to them and walk right on by in the supermarket aisle. So where the [edit] does this murderous rage come from?

      Les, you cannot compare an educated American to people of Nigeria. Nigeria has had this war for many years and yes it is wrong but they are ignorant just like the majority of white christians that dont know anything about Islam. For example I expect you to be a moron who knows nothing about Islam but yet to have lots to say. Tell me where do you live? in SA? has any muslim ever done anything to you or anybody else ??? No they have not so shut up and crawl back to your cave!

    We have thousands of nigerian priests in south africa preaching to the converted. Their preachings add no value here!! Proof-they are only after the money anyway. Why can't they go to nigeria and preach to convert the killers to non-killers!
