Extremist Islamic Terror Attacks in Nigeria Kill Over 170

The most recent batch of attacks began Friday, but continued today.

The radical Islamist terror group Boko Haram, believed to have carried out over 500 terror attacks last year, has already claimed responsibility for the violence in Kano. The group, whose name can be translated as “Western education is a sin,” said that the onslaught was a protest against the government’s refusal to release its members from prison.
