Playing Poker Now Reason to Kill Infidels

Another day closer to full blown civil war in Nigeria:

Suspected Islamists have shot dead three poker players near a church in the latest attacks targeting Christians in northeast Nigeria, residents said Sunday....

"The gunmen, believed to be members of Boko Haram, riding a motorcycle, opened fire on a group of Christian residents playing poker outside the abandoned Honeymoon Hotel near EYN church and killed three people," Ba'na Ubaidu, a resident, told Agence France Presse....

"They just fired into the group of about 15 people playing cards, and killed three people," Shamaki said, adding that seven people were wounded.

"The attackers fled into the bush and disappeared. They are by all indications members of Boko Haram," Shamaki said.
