Tensions between Muslims and Christians continue in Nigeria. According to the BBC, the Nigerian army says today that it has killed 74 suspected Boko Haram militants in a raid in north-eastern Borno state. This was most likely in response to a recent terror attack on an agricultural college in Northeast Nigeria, which would be regarded by Boka Haram as a symbol of western culture to be opposed. Around 50 students were killed while sleeping in their dormitory. To see the rest of the story, follow the link.
