Official says 47 killed in Nigerian mosque attack

by Wochit 1:10 mins

Residents of a town in northeastern Nigeria where suspected Islamic extremists gunned down 47 worshippers praying in a mosque have demanded that the government give them weapons to defend themselves. Israel has begun releasing 26 Palestinian prisoners, most held for deadly attacks, ahead of renewed Mideast negotiations. Egypt's interim president swore in 20 new provincial governors on Tuesday, a move that reinforces the new leadership's authority and removes all Muslim Brotherhood members previously installed in the posts by Mohammed Morsi before his ouster as president. Inspired by the movement behind Egypt's military coup, anti-government activists seeking more influence in Bahrain are hoping to gain new momentum by calling for nationwide protests. Authorities warned they will "forcefully confront" any large demonstrations, raising fears of more violence in the strategic Gulf kingdom.
