Learning about Boko Haram

If you have been paying attention to the news in Nigeria (or subscribing to the DAWNS Digest), you would be aware of the increasing attacks by the Islamist group Boko Haram. Their latest attack was over the weekend involved bomb attacks that killed over 100 people. As the violence continues to grow, it is important to know more about the group. Fortuantely, the folks at Al Jazeera are top notch journalists and have put together a 25 minute piece that brings the group to light. It is definitely worth watching, especially the points of analysis and discussion.
