Islamists Attack UN Compound in Nigeria

Nigerian Islamists attacked an United Nations office complex with deadly results this morning: 5 dead and 20 wounded. The United States Embassy was in the same neighborhood, and thankfully, wasn't impacted by the blast.

Nigeria is the largest nation in Africa, but due to ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan and Somalia, hasn't received the same amount of press attention of its Islamic terrorism, even though 14,000 people have died since 1999 in religious clashes between the muslim north and the Christian south.

We can only hope the wounded survive this vicious attack and that President Goodluck's administration will crack down on the Islamists terrorizing his country.

What say you?
