JOS, Nigeria, Sept 5 At least 11 people have
been killed in spiraling violence between Christian and Muslim
youths in central Nigeria's volatile Plateau state since Sunday
night, authorities said on Monday.
The latest killings bring the total number of people killed
in the ethnically and religiously-mixed area in the past week to
at least 50.
The cycle of violence started when Christian youths attacked
some Muslims as they gathered to celebrate the end of Ramadan in
the city of Jos, capital of Plateau state.
