POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) -- Islamic militants attacked a boarding school before dawn Saturday, dousing a dormitory in fuel and lighting it ablaze as students slept, survivors said. At least 30 people were killed in the deadliest attack yet on schools in Nigeria's embattled northeast.
Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means "Western education is sacrilege." The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom.
"We were sleeping when we heard gunshots. When I woke up, someone was pointing a gun at me," Musa Hassan, 15, told The Associated Press of the assault on Government Secondary School in Mamudo village in Yobe state.
He put his arm up in defense, and suffered a gunshot that blew off all four fingers on his right hand, the one he uses to write. His life was spared when the militants moved on after shooting him.
Hassan recalled how the gunmen came armed with jerry cans of fuel that they used to torch the school's administrative block and one of the dormitories.
"They burned the children alive," he said, the horror showing in his wide eyes.
He and teachers at the morgue said dozens of children from the 1,200-student school escaped into the bush but have not been seen since.
On Saturday, at the morgue of Potiskum General Hospital, a few miles (kilometers) from the scene of the attack, parents screamed in anguish as they attempted to identify the victims, many charred beyond recognition. Some parents do not know if their children survived or died.

Psalm 7: 6-8
6Arise, Lord, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice. 7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you, while you sit enthroned over them on high. 8 Let the Lord judge the peoples.
Just another news article that once again affirms that Islam is a Satan owned corporation masquerading as a religion that took just enough bits and peces from the history in the bible to make it appear credible enough to fool billions into believing Satan’s aka Allah’s lies and doing his will.
Islam will destroy the world if it isn’t stopped - and soon.
On a daily basis, muslims are killing people (i.e. Jews, Christians, other muslims, etc.), all the time, all over the planet, and it's not reported.
Obama wants these murdering monkeys in charge in every mid-Eastern country first, Western and European countries next. He said it in his own words.
Just like the Clintons did at Waco.
"...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time;...that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them. ""I HAVE SWORN UPON THE ALTAR OF GOD ETERNAL HOSTILITY TO EVERY FORM OF TYRANNY OVER THE MIND OF MAN"--The Virginia Act For Establishing Religious Freedom
--Thomas Jefferson, 1786
So, reading the article, it sounds like Muslims get attacked right along with Christians.
I think I have never seen such evil right out there— not disguised as anything else. No subtlety, no misdirection— just violence against unarmed children.
Who the heck would join a movement like that?
That’s not the kind of school violence that leftists care about. Can’t use it to take our guns away.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I guess we're going to have to settle for brutes in charge, huh?
Well said - nice summing up in a single sentence.
Religion of Peace?

Kerry sailed, Africa failed.
The RELIGION OF PEACE strikes again.
Is that pronounced Pot O’ Scum?
