Boko Haram strikes again--but no big deal: they only killed males
You haven't heard much about this terrorist group for a while, have you? That's because they've learned how to keep a low profile in the eyes of world news organizations: they single out males for most of their atrocities.
For two weeks, Boko Haram gunmen have sacked dozens of villages in close to the border of Cameroon, slaughtering male residents. http://edition.cnn.com/2015/01/28/africa/boko-haram-raids/
Earlier this month Boko Haram militants abducted 40 boys and young men, ages 15-23, in a remote community in Nigeria. They seize young men during raids and force them to become foot soldiers in its uprising aimed at establishing an Islamic state in northern Nigeria. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2895299/Boko-Haram-seizes-40-boys-men-northern-Nigeria-witnesses.html
Boko Haram recently returned a large group of kidnapped girls, but not kidnapped boys. http://www.inquisitr.com/1786891/boko-haram-calls-girl-hostages-infidels-orders-them-to-return-to-village/
Nice of the First Lady to hold up a sign for the boys.
