Mosque prayer service in Nigeria after attacks
Emir of Kano holds prayer service after attacks killed more than 150 in north Nigeria
By The Associated Press

KANO, Nigeria (AP) ' The emir of Kano has led a prayer service asking for God to help end attacks by a radical Islamist sect across Nigeria's north.

The ceremony by the senior Muslim religious official was held Monday in the city of Kano, where more than 150 were killed in a series of coordinated attacks Friday by Boko Haram. The emir spoke only for one minute in a voice so soft those gathered inside the half-emptied mosque could barely hear.

Boko Haram means "Western education is sacrilege" in the Hausa language of Nigeria's north. The group has carried out increasingly sophisticated and bloody attacks in its campaign to implement strict Shariah law and avenge the deaths of Muslims in communal violence across Nigeria.
