Ten people, including a three-year-old girl, are dead following a brutal attack on a Christian village in Nigeria.
An early-morning attack in Nigeria's Kaduna State by armed Fulani herdsmen was fatal for several villagers, the Christian Post reports.
Elizabeth Samaila, only three-years-old, died after suffering multiple lacerations to the head, delivered by a machete. She died earlier this week in hospital shortly after the attack took place, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) said in a report.
"What is particularly unacceptable is that her death is the latest to occur in a series of attacks which continue unabated," says Mervyn Thomas, chief executive for CSW.
"Southern Kaduna is steadily being transformed into killing fields, either due to a gross failure of governance, or official indifference and acquiescence."
Nine others were also killed in the attack. They were buried in a mass grave after six of the individuals were identified.
