Gunmen kill over 40 students as they sleep in Nigerian college dorms


quote:

DAMATURU, Nigeria (Reuters) - Suspected Islamist militants stormed a college in northeastern Nigeria and shot dead around 40 male students, some of them while they slept early on Sunday, witnesses said.

The gunmen, thought to be members of rebel sect Boko Haram, attacked one hostel, took some students outside before killing them and shot others trying to flee, people at the scene told Reuters.

"They started gathering students into groups outside, then they opened fire and killed one group and then moved onto the next group and killed them. It was so terrible," said one surviving student Idris, who would only give his first name.

"They came with guns around 1 a.m. (2400 GMT) and went directly to the male hostel and opened fire on them ... The college is in the bush so the other students were running around helplessly as guns went off and some of them were shot down," said Ahmed Gujunba, a taxi driver who lives by the college.

Boko Haram, which wants to establish an Islamic state in northern Nigeria, has intensified attacks on civilians in recent weeks in revenge for a military offensive against its insurgency.

Several schools, seen as the focus of Western-style education and culture, have been targeted.

Boko Haram and spin-off Islamist groups like the al Qaeda-linked Ansaru have become the biggest security threat in Africa's second largest economy and top oil exporter.

I was going to post this earlier, but it's so commonplace that it hardly warrants a read. I would say that we are dealing with a clash of Civilizations but that would infer that Islam is somehow civilized. There is no depravity they are unwilling to explore. It's a Death Cult. Charles Manson has more human compassion.

I hear you, but it's still worth documenting.

This seems to be the primary target of Boko Haram:

My wife's sister lived in Nigeria for about 15 years (she's a nurse). She said it is increasingly becoming a a scary place to live.

No you are right of course. But atrocity is all I expect from Islam. If there were a story that demonstrated virtue or compassion within Islam towards non-Muslims, that would be the shocker.

Trackfan says, you just don't have a sophisticated enough worldview to fully understand the concept of 'blowback.'

Sorry.

1. Muslims are the only community that seems to find reasons to commit mass murder on a regular basis despite the unfairness that affects everyone else equally throughout the world.

2. Boko haram formed due to the Nigerian govt slaughtering a local activist for no reason. Hence Muslims in the north wanting their own state. Although extremely violent, boko haram hasn't overtly acted outside Nigeria.

The combination of Islam and Sub Saharan Africa is absolutely horrifying. Nothing good can come from that.

Yep.

Radical Islam is truly the scourge of the earth.

I have said the same thing too many times, and to them it really doesn't matter who they are killing. In the case of the countries of North Africa and the Med being a Christian is rapidly becoming a signed death warrant by friendly Muzziess.

I am absolutely certain that Islam is devil worship in disguise. Allah is the Great Pretender himself, turning millions into bloodthirsty killers and laughing himself silly with each shot.
