3 churches burned down in Nigeria; 10 Christians brutally murdered

Catholic World News - December 03, 2012

Shouting “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is great), Islamist terrorists slit the throats of 10 Christians in Chibok, a city of 65,000 in northeastern Nigeria. Following the December 1 murders, the attackers “then set houses in the area on fire,” said a local resident. “They just sacked the neighborhood.”

On December 2, terrorists burned down three churches in Gamboru Ngala, another northeastern Nigerian city. The Islamist terrorist organization Boko Haram is suspected in each of the attacks.

    Why is no one doing anything about this situation? Why is it no being discussed at the UN.
