Nigeria vows to hunt those behind mosque attacks


KANO, Nigeria: Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan vowed to hunt down those behind “heinous” attacks that killed at least 120 at the mosque of an Islamic leader who issued a call to arms against Boko Haram. At least 270 others were also wounded when two suicide bombers blew themselves up and gunmen opened fire during weekly prayers on Friday at the Grand Mosque in Kano, the biggest city in the mainly Muslim north of the country, according to a toll given to Agence France-Presse late on Friday by a senior rescue official. Jonathan “directed the security agencies to launch a full-scale investigation and to leave no stone unturned until all agents of terror are tracked down and brought to justice,” said a statement from his office on Saturday.
