Boko Haram Uses Two Bombs, Kill 44 People In Nigeria

You know, the weekend nearly escaped without a mass murder by Boko Haram....remember, I said "almost."

As you read this story of another 44 human beings slaughtered at the hands of Boko Haram, remember that it as the U.S. State Department UNDER HILLARY CLINTON that refused to name Boko Haram as a terror organization.

The story comes from Times of India.

Bombs at mosque, restaurant in central Nigerian city kill 44

JOS (Nigeria): An emergency agency official says 44 people were killed by two bombs that exploded at a crowded mosque and an elite Muslim restaurant in Nigeria's central city of Jos.

Abdussalam Mohammed of the National Emergency Management Agency says 67 other people were wounded and are being treated in hospitals.

Witnesses who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals say the explosion at Yantaya Mosque came as a leading cleric who preaches peaceful co-existence was addressing a crowd during the holy month of Ramadan.

Another bomb exploded at Shagalinku, a restaurant patronized by elite politicians.

Jos is located where Nigeria's majority Muslim north and mainly Christian south collide. The city has been targeted in the past by bomb blasts claimed by Boko Haram Islamic extremists that have killed hundreds of people. .
