The Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, popularly referred to as Shiite, on Sunday released the names of some of its members said to have been killed by the Nigerian Army last week.
The list has 34 names.
The Shiite members were said to have been killed last week when they protested the continued detention of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
The members, on different occasions, converged at different places in Abuja to embark on processions, but were prevented by security forces.

Soldiers opened fire at the protesters, claiming that their actions were in self defence.
The protesters were said to have tried to force their way into the city when they were resisted.
They claimed that some of them were caught with petrol bombs.
The military claimed that at least three people were killed, but the Shiite claimed they were more.
They claimed that soldiers took some of the corpses away in their trucks.
In a move to prove its point, Shiite on Sunday released the names of some of its members said to have been killed by soldiers and promised to update the list.
The group called for the international community to mount pressure on the government to investigate the killings and bring those responsible to book.
