Nigeria: army massacre of Shi'ites claimed in north | World War 4 Report: The US embassy has joined Amnesty International in calling for an urgent investigation into the violence. "Whilst the final death toll is unclear, there is no doubt of that there has been a substantial loss of life at the hands of the military," said MK Ibrahim, director of Amnesty International Nigeria.

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has summoned an emergency meeting of its leaders at the National Mosque in Abuja to review the massacre claims.
