The more I post these the more I am at a loss for words. But people must know the truth about how Christians are being persecuted in these countries by these Islamists, whether it be in the Sudan or in Nigeria:
YAHOO NEWS – Suspected Islamist fighters went on the rampage in northeast Nigeria overnight, killing 10 Christians with guns and machetes and burning down their houses, witnesses said on Sunday.
The attack happened in a village called Chibok, in a remote part of northeastern Borno state, at the heart of an insurgency led by Islamist sect Boko Haram.
“Suspected Boko Haram came at night and set people’s houses on fire before killing their victims,” said Nuhu Clark, a former councilor of the village who escaped the attack. He said he counted 10 bodies afterwards.
A police spokesman said they were aware of the incident but were still trying to confirm casualties.
Islamist fighters have killed hundreds of people since launching an uprising against the government in 2009, the usual targets being security forces, government officials or Christians, whom Boko Haram sees as infidels.
In a separate incident, militants burned down three churches on Saturday in Gamboru, also in Borno state, said trader Umar Abubakar, who witnessed the attack.
Security forces said on Sunday they had killed a senior Boko Haram commander Mohammed Ibrahim, one of several who had a bounty placed on his head last week – of 25 million naira ($158,900) in his case.
“He was killed in an operation in Gwange ward (Borno state) along with two of his unit commanders,” said a spokesman for joint military and police forces in Borno state, Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa.

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven…” – Matthew 5:10-12
