Nigerian Muslim group slaughters 20 young womenMaiduguri - Friday, about a day after 10 men were killed in Maiduguri, at least 20 women, some clad in mini-skirts and others in slacks, were slaughtered in their Maiduguri homes and college dormitories....
The new execution-style violence is different than other recent killings conducted by Boko Haram Muslims in that it targeted women only. Authorities believe the women may have been slaughtered due to dressing in Western style.
The murders were carried out in the early hours of Friday, between 1 and 2am while victims slept. Ironically, a curfew imposed by state government insured the women would be home.
The women were slaughtered near the University of Maiduguri in facilities where students live off-Campus due to overcrowding.
