Soldiers Shoot at University Students in Nigeria

From AP via WaPo:
Witnesses say soldiers in a central Nigerian city opened fire on students protesting continuing violence between Christians and Muslims.

Saturday's shooting comes after rioters set fire to gas stations and a farmer's market Friday night in the city of Jos, a city at the epicenter of tensions between Nigeria's two dominant faiths. That fighting began when students attacked Muslims attempting to bury a corpse.
