43 left dead in elementary school massacre in Nigeria

KANO, Nigeria--Suspected Boko Haram Islamists killed 43 people on Tuesday when they attacked secondary school students as they slept in the latest school massacre to hit Nigeria's troubled northeast.

The raid at 2:00 a.m. (0100 GMT) targeted the Federal Government College in the town of Buni Yadi in Yobe state and bore the hallmarks of a similar attack last September in which 40 died.

The attackers reportedly hurled explosives into student residential buildings, sprayed gunfire into rooms and hacked a number students to death.

I hope this is not a part of the teachings of the prophet Mohammad being carried out by this Muslim group. I thought the world's religions are teaching the brotherhood of mankind and to love one another. There is this religion teaching their followers to kill the innocent and helpless to be rewarded after death with so many virgins.
