Seven Christians were killed by Islamists in the village of Tahoss near Jos, Nigeria.
The Washington Post reported, via ROP:

Gunmen set fire to a home in a Christian village near a central Nigeria city violently divided by faith and shot those who ran outside to flee the flames, killing at least seven people and wounding one other, authorities said Thursday.

The attack represents the latest killings spiraling out of unrest between Christians and Muslims living around the city of Jos, an area that has seen thousands killed in the last decade in fighting. That violence continues to go further and further out into rural villages, a potential sign that killings could again rage out of control.

The killings that took place late Wednesday night happened in the village of Tahoss, said Mark Lipdo, who runs a Christian advocacy group known as the Stefanos Foundation. The gunmen, suspected to be from the Muslim Fulani herdsmen who roam the pasturelands of the plateau, targeted one specific family in their attack, Lipdo said.

Local police spokesman Samuel Dabai said he visited Tahoss and saw the corpses. Dabai said police had begun an investigation into the attack.

    Remember kids, Islam is a Religion of Peace. Nothing to see here, move along.

  • Having read this I thought it was extremely informative. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

    Christianity and islam. Both claim to be the “religion of peace”.
    Gee, I,m having a hard time telling them apart. Oh I remember!
    Jesus said “love your neighbor”.
    mohamaneggs said “kill everyone you don’t agree with”.
    Even so, come soon Lord Jesus

    Yet, the UN Special Rapporteur is in the US compiling evidence of discrimination. The cowards would never send one to Nigeria because they’d come back in a bodybag.

    Another day in Africa, another killing in the name of… Islam.

    Please visit a Catholic church. YOu will never hear an anti-Islam homily. In fact, Islam is prayed for even as they target us and sermonize unceasingly about the Catholic church and burn and shoot.

    Islam doesn’t believe in abortion, but it believes in killing Christian babies, pregnant mothers and children.

    A Mexican christian drug cartel should be set in Nigeria to balance the politics. The Nigerian muslims would not like the Neuvo Larado payback

    How many times do you hear of Christians doing this to Muslim families? I cannot think of one. It is time to fight back. Muslims are violating human rights….tell the UN to do something about this…sarcasm.
    It is time for another crusade.
