Thousands of Nigerian Shiites have staged protest over the killing of hundreds of Shia members in a clash with the Nigerian Army in Zaria.
The largest marches are going on in Kano, Kebbi and Bauchi.
Similarly, another protest is being staged by Iranians outside the Nigerian Embassy in Tehran. Shia Islam is the state religion of Iran and the country has already summoned Nigeria’s charge d’affaires to protest over the Nigerian army’s deadly crackdown.
Here are photos from the Iranian protest.
