Hezbollah is apparently not content with Boko Haram slicing up Christians with machetes and burning down their churches. And apparently, neither is the EU, despite the fact that Hezb'allah was behind the bus bombing of Jewish women and children on holiday in Bulgaria last year.
Britain Fails to Get EU Backing for Hizbullah Blacklisting Justyna Pawlak
A British drive to put Hizbullah's armed wing on the EU's terror list ran into resistance on Wednesday when discussed for a second time by a special EU group. Diplomats say a majority of the 27 EU member states, including France and Germany, back the British proposal. But unanimity is needed and Austria, the Czech Republic and Italy are among EU governments that have voiced reservations. (Reuters)

A cache of Hezbollah weapons was recently discovered in Nigeria and a Hezbollah network was exposed. According to local security forces, the network operatives intended to attack Israeli and Western targets. Terrorism Info.org, June 19, 2013 (thanks to Bill)
Some of the weapons uncovered in the northern Nigerian city of Kano (Channelstv.com website, May 2013).
1. On May 28, 2013 , after a month-long investigation, the Nigerian security services uncovered a cache of weapons in the city of Kano, in northern Nigeria . It included anti-tank weapons, RPGs and RPG launchers, submachine guns, handguns, and a large quantity of ammunition and explosives (Bbc.co.uk website, May 30 2013). There is a large community of Lebanese businessmen in Kano.
2. According to the Nigerian security services the weapons belonged to a Hezbollah network that operated in the country , and intended to launch terrorist attacks on Israeli and Western targets . In addition, three Lebanese nationals residing in Nigeria were detained, and during interrogation admitted to having been trained by Hezbollah (Allafrica.com website, May 31, 2013). Pictures of the weapons indicated 2 090-13 that they had been poorly maintained and most of them were rusty. Some of them, like anti-tank missiles and mines, were suitable for guerilla warfare.
3. Despite the fact that an estimated 20,000 individuals of Lebanese origin live in Nigeria, this was the first time the Nigerian law enforcement authorities had uncovered direct Hezbollah activities in the country . On the two previous occasions when Shi'ite terrorist activity was uncovered, it had been carried out by Iran: The exposure of an Iranian arms shipment in October 2010 caused tension between Iran and Nigeria, and Nigeria lodged a formal complaint against Iran and in the Security Council. (Gambia severed its diplomatic relations with Iran as did Senegal, although Senegal later reinstated them.) In February 2013 an Iranian-handled terrorist network was exposed in Nigeria, headed by a Nigerian cleric who had trained in Iran (See Appendix.). For that reason Iran may now be keeping a low profile in its subversive and terrorist activity in Nigeria, and may be want to use proxy organizations such as Hezbollah.
