NAIROBI, Kenya — It's getting worse and worse in Nigeria where the Islamist militants of Boko Haram are doing their damnedest to provoke a full-scale ethno-religious war.
Not content with blowing up UN buildings, chucking grenades at policemen and sending lynch mobs to churches they have now, it seems, begun Valentine's Day Massacre-style attacks on Christians, which means southerners.
Something like 20 people died in the latest bout of violence that targeted a group of mourners and a church.
Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency but so far seems clueless as to how to stop Boko Haram's increasingly bold attacks.
More than 80 Nigerian Christians have been killed since Christmas.
Watch below to see how Boko Haram attacks are creating ghost towns in Nigeria:
