Amnesty International condemns the killing of the Shiites by the Nigerian Army.

Foremost rights group, Amnesty International, has condemned the killing of dozens of Shiite protesters by the Nigerian Army.

It had been earlier reported how the soldiers killed the Shiites in protests in and around Abuja between Saturday and Tuesday.

The protesters, members of the IMN, apart from embarking on a religious march were also demanding the release of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

“It seems the Nigerian military are deliberately using tactics designed to kill when dealing with IMN gatherings,” Amnesty International said in a statement.
