Another Sunday bombing in Nigeria, but this time, it's of a Muslim school; the Sunday School bombing of the week happened in Kenya.
Gunmen detonated a bomb Sunday near an Islamic boarding school in northern Nigeria and later exchanged gunfire with security forces, causing unknown casualties in the region's latest round of violence, officials said.
Boko Haram has attacked mosques and killed Muslims in the past. The Zaria boarding school near Sunday's bombing is run by Awwal Adam Albani, who is a critic of Boko Haram and a follower of the ultraconservative sect of Islam known as Salafi.
The Salafi are a back-to-basics bunch within Islam; while they have a few jihadist in their midst (the Blind Sheik from the first World Trade Center bombing is one), terrorism isn't their strong suit and many of them have preached against such terrorism. When the Salafi aren't radical enough for you... things are getting out there. If the Salafis are Islam's answer to the King James only Baptists, then Boko Haram is more like Fred Phelps gone violent.
