Los Angeles Times: Cartoon Protests Leave 15 Dead in Nigeria

Nigerian Muslims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches on Saturday in violence that left at least 15 people dead, police and a resident said.

Troops and police reinforcements have been deployed to restore order in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, where 15 Christian churches were burned, said Nigerian police spokesman Haz Iwendi.

Chima Ezeoke, a Maiduguri resident, said the protesters attacked and looted shops in the city owned by minority Christians, most of them with origins in the country’s south.

“Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters,” Ezeoke said.

Wanton criminal activity including murder in the name of Muhammad? This sounds to Flap to be an “excuse” for criminal behavior.

Women supporters of a Pakistani religious party Jamaat-e-Islami, raise placards reading ‘Muhammad’ as they take part in a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons of Islamic Prophet Muhammad, in Karachi, Pakistan, Saturday, Feb 18, 2006.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country of more than 130 million people, is roughly divided between a predominantly Muslim north and a mainly Christian south.

The Nigerian government MUST protect their own people.

These Muhammad caricature protests continue to spin out of control.

Stay tuned…..
