Islamic religious bigots attack Christmas services in Nigeria killing 6
Gunmen in northern Nigeria attacked a church's Christmas Eve services, killing six people and setting the building on fire, police said.
A pastor was slain in the incident, police said.
It was the latest strike against Christians in the region. More than 30 people died in a wave of Christmas Day attacks in the north last year, blamed on Boko Haram, a militant group that has targeted Christians and Muslims it considered insufficiently Islamist.
"Suspected members of the group have bombed or opened fire on worshipers in at least 18 churches across eight northern and central states since 2010. In Maiduguri, the group also forced Christian men to convert to Islam on penalty of death," Human Rights Watch said in an October report.
...This is one sided sectarian warfare by those pushing the evils of Sharia Law. They are intolerant in the extreme. The government better get better at finding and destroying their operations of things may spin out of control. If the government provide security the Christians will eventually acquire weapons to defend themselves. The attacks show how deadly it is to rely on the government.
