JOS, Nigeria (AP) - Iki Atsen, a Nigerian Christian, says he
told the women in his home to flee and grabbed an ax as a man with
a bullhorn urged 100 Muslim men to storm the home and kill all
Atsen survived, but his two brothers were cut down by machetes and tossed by the mob into a well.
They were among over 300 people slaughtered last week in the worst violence to hit Nigeria in years.
The Nigerian Red Cross says some 12,000 people have sought refuge at 13 makeshift camps across the central city of Jos, where homes, churches and mosques lie in ruins.
