Nigeria: December 11, 2002


  The final tally for the "Miss World Riots" was 220 dead, more than 1,500 injured. Property damage was extensive with 16 churches, nine mosques, some 200 homes and three schools burned down. Over 30,000 fled their homes. More ominously, Christian groups are now saying out loud that they are tired of this Islamic violence and will organize to counter it.
