Recent riots in Nigeria

CHRISTIAN youths have burned the corpses of Muslims on the streets of Onitsha in south-eastern Nigeria. The city is the worst hit by religious riots that have killed at least 138 people across the country in five days.

This is in retaliation to similar riots in Kaduna and other northern states.

In northern Maiduguri, where the Christian Association of Nigeria says 50 Christians were killed in a weekend riot that began as a protest against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, tensions were high during several Christian funeral masses.

I understand that one issue that divides people (families, towns, states, countries, etc), roots of this divide can be traced to religion. Dealing with religious issues can be a very sensitive topic; with that said, please being mindful and respectful of everyone\'s religious beliefs

What are your thoughts regarding the rioting in Nigeria?

my personal opinion, It is a sad development. I never thought Nigerians would join in the riots across the globe especially buring down structures and killing one another.
