Militants Attack

From the BBC:

"Dozens of people have been killed after Islamist militants staged three attacks in northern Nigeria, taking the total killed in two days of violence to 150."

The militants are followers of a cleric named Mohammed Yusuf:

"Mr Yusuf's followers in Bauchi are known as Boko Haram, which means "Education is prohibited".

Just thought you might like to know.

I'm sure that this is Israel's fault, somehow.

Kwelos,

I really appreciate this comment, which I think is well worth reading for anyone.

I don't speak the language, of course, so I had to count on the BBC's translation. Thanks for providing this clarification.

Whoa. Really scary stuff. ( Though not as scary as when I though you said "Procul Harem".)
