I'm surprised this story hasn't already been posted because it happened on Friday.

Boko Haram wants to put strict Shariah law in place across Nigeria, an oil-rich nation of more than 160 million people that has a predominantly Christian south and a Muslim north. The sect’s name means “Western education is sacrilege” in the local Hausa language, and it rejects Nigeria’s democratic process, which is similar to that in the United States. Boko Haram says democracy has created corrupt leaders who have destroyed the country.

 

Yeah, and I'm sure they'll all be better off under sharia.
