Suspected Islamist militants kill dozens of students in Nigeria ^ | 2/25/14 | associated press

DAMATURU, NIGERIA – Suspected Islamic militants killed dozens of students in a pre-dawn attack Tuesday on a northeast Nigerian college, survivors said, setting ablaze a locked hostel and shooting and slitting the throats of those who escaped through windows. Some were burned alive.

Adamu Garba said he and other teachers who ran away through the bush estimate 40 students died in the assault that began around 2 a.m. Tuesday at the Federal Government College at Buni Yadi. It is a co-ed school about 45 miles south of Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, and difficult to communicate with because extremists last year destroyed the cell phone tower there.

Soldiers still are gathering corpses so he could not give an exact number of dead, said military spokesman Capt. Eli Lazarus.

Garba, who teaches at a secondary school attached to the college, said the attackers first set ablaze the college administrative block, then moved to the hostels, where they locked students in and started firebombing the buildings.

Why would anyone "suspect" these were Islamic militants? What could possibly give them away? Certainly the Associated Press would be able to recognize the current wave of butchers on this planet and their background? Or are they still trying to be "even handed," "non judgmental" and neutral in their reporting? Meanwhile the slaughter goes on. BTW, I never saw it mentioned that these murdered students were "suspected" Christians.

Let’s continue to punish Canada and continue to buy our oil from places like Nigeria. Yippee!
