US warns of attacks on hotels in Nigerian capital
Source: BBC News

An Islamist group which has carried out deadly attacks in north-eastern Nigeria may be planning to bomb hotels in the capital, Abuja, the US embassy says.

The Hilton, Nicon Luxury and Sheraton hotels were named as possible targets of the Boko Haram group.

The warning came as the Nigerian Red Cross said more than 100 had died in the attacks, mainly in the town of Damaturu.

4. no
theres absolutely nothing like Boko Haram in the west or anywhere in the world. These idiots reject "western" technology and technology for that matter but use bombs and guns deviced throught western (chinese in case of gun powder). They are more backwards than the amish, more religious than the christian right and very dangerous for their numbers.

This is another problem with an armed conflict in Nigeria, a bombing that would normally kill 30-40 people will end up killing 2-3x as much because of the population density.

God help us all
