Christian mob burns man alive after Nigeria church attack

By AFP

KADUNA, Nigeria (AFP) - A Christian mob angry over a deadly suicide attack on a Nigerian church on Sunday burnt alive a man they believed to be Muslim as part of reprisal violence, an AFP correspondent said.

Attackers beat the motorcycle taxi driver, then put his bike on top of him before dousing him with petrol and setting him on fire, the AFP correspondent who saw the violence said.

A rescue official also spoke of the incident on condition of anonymity and said rescuers could not save him because the mob was too violent.
