Christian-Muslim Violence in Nigeria April 10, 2014
At least 3,600 civilians have been killed in Nigeria since 2009, when the Islamist militant group Boko Haram began a rebellion against that country's government. It's the latest in a long history of tension between Nigeria's Muslim North and Christian South. But as is true of many other places, Nigeria’s violence has deeper roots than just theological differences.
