3rd deadly Christmas

Six people were killed by unidentified gunmen Dec. 25 at a church near Potiskum in Yobe state, Nigeria. It was the third year in a row that Christians have been killed at Christmas worship services in Nigeria. Yobe state is where the Islamic fundamentalist group Boko Haram, which is demanding Shariah law across northern Nigeria, bombed churches on Christmas Day 2011 and killed more than 40 in similar attacks in 2010.
