Boko Haram kills nearly 200 in 48 hours of Nigeria slaughter

Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) – Boko Haram carried out a fresh wave of massacres in northeastern Nigeria on Friday, locals said, killing nearly 200 people in 48 hours of violence President Muhammadu Buhari blasted as “inhuman and barbaric”.

The militants have staged multiple attacks across restive Borno state since Wednesday, gunning down worshippers at evening Ramadan prayers, shooting women in their homes, and dragging men from their beds in the dead of night.

A young female suicide bomber also killed 12 worshippers when she blew herself up in a mosque in Borno. While there was no immediate claim of responsibility, Boko Haram has used both men and young women and girls as human bombs in the past.

    If all it takes is another NYT op-ed blaming the Jews to have the ragtards kill another hundred thousand of each other, I’m ok with that.

    Nothing says Happy Ramadandandan like murdering a couple of hundred of your co-religionists.

    Evil and stupid is a horrible combination.

    All modern nations with a sizable force of special forces such as Japan and Australia ought to send them to fight Boko Haram and ISIL; it would provide wonderful training opportunities! I mean, really, how difficult could it be to dislodge the jihadists from Palmyra? All they need is a few helicopter gunships and some good intel along with some very special boots on the ground!
