      Suspected Islamic militants stormed the predominately Christian village of Izge along Nigeria's mountainous border with Cameroon, Saturday night, killing at least 90 people according to a local official and a witness who were quoted Sunday, by the Wall Street Journal.

      Local resident Ibrahim Musa said several hundred fighters screaming "Allah akbar," or "God is great," ran through the village. He added, "They started shooting sporadically, killing everyone on sight." Musa said fled and when he returned Sunday, he counted 90 bodies, "littered everywhere in our town."
