More Church burnings...

Not in the American South, but in Nigeria as Muslims attacked Christians and burned churches, kiling at least 15 people.
According to the AP report, "mobs of Muslim protesters swarm through the city center with machetes, sticks and iron rods. One group threw a tire around a man, poured gas on him and set him ablaze" and "protesters attacked and looted shops owned by minority Christians, most of them with origins in the country's south. Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters; Witnesses said three children and a priest were among those killed."
