Police arrested 59 suspects over the bloody attack on a farming community in central Nigeria's Plateau State. The situation in Yelwa was reportedly calm, days after the attack by nomadic fighters who slaughtered residents who had taken shelter in a church. The fighting was triggered by tribal and religious feuds between  Hausa/Fulani and Taroh (who are doing the raiding recently).-- Adam Geibel
