44 Killed at Nigerian Mosque

Attacked while praying


Security agents say suspected Islamic militants have gunned down 44 people praying at a mosque in northeast Nigeria.

The mosque was located in Konduga town, some 35 kilometers (22 miles) outside Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria's Borno state.

A state security service agent and a member of a civilian vigilante group working with the military said Monday they counted the bodies at the mosque after Sunday morning's attack.
