Three Chinese doctors killed in Nigeria

Three foreign doctors killed in Nigeria

Three Chinese doctors have been killed by unknown attacker in northern Nigeria.

"Unknown attackers scaled over the fence of an apartment in Potiskum housing three Chinese doctors around 1:00 am and slit their throats. No arrest has been made," Yobe State police commissioner Sanusi Rufa'i told AFP.

"It is still premature to point any accusing fingers but we have commenced investigation to unravel the killings," he added

Residents said the Chinese were employees of the state ministry of health and had been living in the volatile city for one year.

"This morning, it was discovered that three Chinese doctors have been slaughtered. People became worried when the doctors did not open their door in the morning," a resident who did not want to be named, told AFP.
