Around 30 people were killed and 25 others injured on Jan. 7 during an attack in Plateau state, in central Nigeria.

More than 40 houses were burnt down during the attack, which local media blamed on Fulani herdsmen.

Much of the violence is blamed on land disputes between mainly Muslim Fulani herdsmen and the mainly Christian Berom farmers, reports the BBC, in the area where Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north meets its Christian-majority south.
