Niger: Muslims Kill 10 Christians, Torch 45 Churches, but remember they’re hurtin over #CharlieHebdo

At least 10 people have been killed and 45 churches set on fire since protests erupted in Niger over the French magazine Charlie Hebdo’s depiction of the Prophet Muhammad, police say.

The government has declared three days of mourning for those who died.

Hotels and bars were also burned to the ground during a weekend of violent protests, the authorities said.

Islamist gunmen killed 12 people at Charlie Hebdo’s offices in an attack earlier this month.
