At least 85 civilians killed by a Nigerian army drone attack, in the latest such deadly mistake

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — At least 85 civilians were killed when an army drone attack erroneously targeted a religious gathering in northwest Nigeria, officials confirmed Tuesday, as the president ordered a probe into the latest in a series of such deadly mistakes in Nigeria’s conflict zones.

The strike took place Sunday night in Kaduna state’s Tudun Biri village while residents observed the Muslim holiday marking the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, government officials said. The military believed it was “targeting terrorists and bandits,” officials said.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
    will be much more useful than ever before.

  5. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
