Islamic Militants Attack A School

Yesterday Islamic militants set fire to a locked dormitory at a school in Nigeria, then shot and slit the throats of students who tried to escape through the windows. The victims were all male and between 15 and 20 years old. Female students were spared in the attack although girls and women have been abducted in the past by militants of the Boko Haram movement, whose name means “Western education is forbidden”. This time the females were told to go home, get married and abandon the Western education they said is “accursed” to Islam.
