Nigeria affected by radical Islam in north: "Education is prohibited"


Will Conors writes today in The Wall Street Journal on p A8, “In Nigeria, An Islamist Expansion”.

The story reports the activity of a radical Islamist group “Boko Haram” which means “Education is prohibited”, presumably for women. (It reminds me of the Moonies in the late 1970s: “no more concepts”.) The link is here.

On July 29 Connors will report the disapproval by oil companies of Nigeria’s draft oil regulation bill.

The stories tie in to the security threats made by radical groups (perhaps communist in nature rather than Islamist) against pipelines, mentioned in this blog previously.

Connors also reported on p A8 today about a deal between Ghana and the oil companies.
