Yobe: Gunmen kill 20 in mosque attack

Survivors say suspected Islamic militants opened fire in a mosque in northeastern Nigeria and gunned down at least 20 worshipers.
Civil servant Musa Ibrahim said the gunmen struck before dawn Saturday as residents of Buni Gari village were gathering for the first prayer of the day. The village is about 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of the Yobe state capital of Damaturu in an area that has been attacked numerous times.
Mosques have been a frequent target of militants who threaten Muslim clerics who preach against their extremist doctrine.
