Muslims* Burn Nigerian Churches
The situation, sparked by a woman's alledged comments about Muhammed, has resulted in 1,000 African Christian refugees.
“It was calm during the night,” the bishop said, but was very concerned as the “police would not respond to the calls for protection from the Christians.”
According to one report the anger was said to have been “sparked off by an alleged blasphemous comment on Prophet Muhammed by a Christian woman, who reportedly spoke in reaction to a similarly irreverent statement about Jesus Christ by a male Muslim.”
*Not all Muslims, but nonetheless a few individuals who are, in fact, Muslim.
