Notice how the article says without provocation. As if........
They are Christians. That is provocation enough, every dhimmi knows that.
Is there any country where Muslims are two percent or more of the population and live side by side in peace with non-Muslims?
Muslims burn down churches, shops
Melee reportedly broke out with no provocation from Christians WND hat tip Mike
An angry Muslim mob attacked Christian-owned shops and houses, burned down eight churches and injured several people in the northern Nigerian town of Kazaure. But the melee was prompted by a Muslim police officer who had a dispute with a Muslim citizen, according to a group that monitors persecution of Christians.
The Muslim police officer pulled over a Muslim for a traffic violation Feb. 21, but the driver became angry and refused to stop, explained International Christian Concern's Jonathan Racho. The police officer then pursued the driver, caught up with him and assaulted the driver after forcefully removing him from the car.
The driver was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Tension in the region has been high since last month's Muslim rioting in Jos where 300 people reportedly were killed, human rights activists report.
"The driver died from his wounds received from the police officer. But it's important to note that this has nothing to do with any of the area's Christian residents," Racho explained. "It was a traffic incident, and neither the police officer nor the driver were Christians."
Racho said the Muslim mob "came together and tried to attack the police station."
"When they couldn't do that, they turned their attention to the Christians in the city. They burned down several Christian shops and a church."
