Nigeria’s Islamists grow more deadly


COORDINATED attacks claimed by a radical Islamist sect have killed at least 200 people in north Nigeria’s largest city, hospital records show, as gunfire still echoes around some areas of the sprawling city…
Boko Haram, whose name means ‘’Western education is sacrilege’’ in the local Hausa language, is responsible for at least 510 killings last year alone, according to an AP count.
So far this year, the group has been blamed for at least 196 killings, according to an AP count.
