Nigeria Kills 14 Suspected Militants in Kano Raid

Nigerian soldiers killed 14 suspected members of the Islamist militant group  Boko Haram during a raid in the city of Kano on Sunday, said a military  spokesperson.

A would-be suicide bomber was also arrested in possession of a car packed  with explosives, say authorities.

One Nigerian soldier was also killed in the raid.

Police moved to raid the militant cell after receiving intelligence  reports suggesting that they were planning a large attack  against Christians on Easter Sunday.

The northern city of Kano has been hit by a series of  terrorist attacks by Boko Haram – an Islamist rebel group which is fighting to  create a breakaway Islamic state in northern Nigeria. Most  recently a suicide attack targeting the Christian community left over 20  people dead on March 19th.
