Suspected Islamic militants have struck for a fourth time in three days in Nigeria, killing 20 people including a traditional ruler in attacks in the northeast, local government and security officials said Wednesday.The unprecedented string of attacks, which started with a massive explosion in the capital that killed at least 75 people, has many questioning the ability of Nigeria's military to contain the 5-year-old Islamic uprising. Wednesday morning, gunmen attacked the village of Wala, in Gwoza district, and killed 18 people, according to a local government official and an intelligence agent.The attacks come after Monday's explosion just miles (kilometers) from Nigeria's seat of government, timed for the busy morning rush hour to ensure maximum casualties, and Tuesday's abduction of about 100 young women writing final exams at a school, also in Gwoza.A reward of 50 million naira ($300,000) was offered Wednesday for information leading to the young women's safe return by Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno state. Jonathan's government has not yet responded to the criticism.
