"Nigerian troops killed one suspected Boko Haram militant Tuesday during a pre-dawn raid in the city of Kano over weekend attacks against church services that left around 20 people dead. A military task force stormed a two-bedroom bungalow in the troubled northern city's Bubbugaje district, two days after attackers armed with bombs and guns sowed carnage among churchgoers on Kano's Bayero university campus. Security sources told an AFP reporter on the scene that one suspected Islamist was killed when a shootout erupted during the raid while another managed to escape." (05/01/12)
