Muhammad Caricature Watch: Christian Anti-Muslim Riot in Nigeria Turns Deadly

Share

People stand around the Kingdom Heritage School Sunday, Feb. 19, 2006, at the city of Maiduguri, Nigeria, after it was damaged during protests on Saturday. Thousands of Nigerian Muslims protesting caricatures depicting the Prophet Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches in northeastern Nigeria, killing at least 15 people, police and residents said.

ASSociated Press: Anti-Muslim Riot in Nigeria Turns Deadly

Christian mobs rampaged through a southern Nigerian city Tuesday, burning mosques and killing several people in an outbreak of anti-Muslim violence that followed deadly protests against caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad over the weekend.

Residents and witnesses in the southern, predominantly Christian city of Onitsha said several Muslims with origins in the north were beaten to death by mobs which also burned two mosques there.

“The mosque at the main market has been burnt and I’ve counted at least six dead bodies on the streets,” Izzy Uzor, an Onitsha resident and businessman, told The Associated Press by telephone. “The whole town is in a frenzy and people are running in all directions.”

The violence appeared to be in reprisal for anti-Christian violence Saturday in the mostly Muslim northern city of Maiduguri in which thousands of Muslims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches, killing at least 18 people.

An unidentified man walks near to a church that was burnt during violent protests yesterday at the city of Maiduguri, Nigeria, Sunday, Feb. 19, 2006.

The violence has to STOP.

But, did the fanatical Muslim organizers of the Muhammad Caricature protests really think that the WEST was ONLY going to take it ?

Stay tuned…..
