Five charged over Nigeria blasphemy murder

Five Muslim men have been charged with the murder of an elderly Christian woman over an alleged blasphemy in the northern Nigerian city of Kano, police said, AFP news agency reports.

The suspects are accused of killing a woman last week after she allegedly insulted the Prophet Muhammad.

The 74-year-old was beaten to death at a Kano market on 2 June.

All five pleaded not guilty at a magistrates court in the city and were remanded in custody pending another hearing on June 28.

The BBC’s Chris Ewokor in the capital, Abuja, says since the incident there has been widespread outcry against the crime from both Muslims and Christians.
