Nigeria Train Attack
The attack on a passenger train Monday night in northwestern Nigeria by gunmen has left “injured and dead” among the nearly 1,000 passengers on board**, local authorities said Tuesday morning.** The head of security in Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan, did not give an exact death toll, nor did he say whether any passengers had been abducted, but said that “a rescue operation was underway”. The evacuation of passengers trapped on board the train was completed on Tuesday morning. Many people are also feared to have been abducted during the “unprecedented” attack, according to Fidet Okhiria, chief executive of the state-owned Nigerian Railway Corporation. The train was attacked at around 9 p.m. local time near Rijana station, on the line linking Abuja, the capital, to Kaduna, a city in the northwest of the country, where gunmen had already tried to attack the airport last week-end. Faced with this growing insecurity, many travelers now prefer to take the more expensive but safer train or plane.
