Muslim Extremists Kill 83 with Christmas Terror Campaign

83 people have been killed and hundreds injured after Muslim extremists launched an international bombing campaign over the Christmas period.

On Friday, a female suicide bomber - said to be the country’s first - killed 45 people outside a World Food Programme distribution centre, in Pashawar, Pakistan.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, which has left around 300,000 people without access to food.

A few hours later, 32 people – many of them doing last minute Christmas shopping – were killed in Jos, Nigeria, after seven explosions across the city.

Around the same time, a few hundred miles northeast in Maiduguri, six others, including a pastor, members of his congregation and two passers by were killed when members of the radical Islamist group Boko Haram attacked and burnt down three churches.

Then, on Christmas Day, a Muslim group linked to the Al-Qaeda network, Abu Sayyaf, bombed a church, injuring six people on the southern Philippine island of Jolo, according to police.

Although the blasts and attacks happened within hours of each other, the international security forces have denied claims they were part of a coordinated campaign.
