KANO, - 15 traders have been killed by unknown gunmen in a daylight attack in Katsina, a government official told The Associated Press on Friday.

Zamfara State spokesman, Ibrahim Muhammad Birnin Magaji said the gunmen burned the bodies of their victims in a village in Katsina state on Thursday, about 120 miles (200 kilometers) from Nigeria's largest northern city of Kano.

Birnin Magaji said the Muslim traders had been traveling from Zamfara State in a minibus to sell their goods in a market in Katsina.

He said authorities suspected an armed robbery attack, but no goods were reported missing.
