Nigerian Muslimaniacs Tell Christians: Submit To Islam Or You "Will Not Know Peace Again"

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) -- A radical Islamist sect claimed responsibility Tuesday for weekend attacks that have killed at least 58 people including two lawmakers in central Nigeria, adding a new dimension to a security crisis in a region that has seen years of religious violence.

Christians "will not know peace again" if they do not accept Islam, said a statement from the Boko Haram sect obtained by The Associated Press.

The northern-based group claimed responsibility for weekend attacks in Plateau state, though some suggested they had acted with local communities.

"(Boko Haram) wants to inform the world of its delight over the success of the attacks we launched on Barkin Ladi and Riyom in Plateau state on Christians and security operatives, including members of the National Assembly," the statement said.

Hundreds of assailants armed with guns and machetes stormed a dozen Christian villages on Saturday, the army said. Some attackers wore police uniforms and bullet-proof vests, said Capt. Mustapha Saliu, a spokesman for a special unit of police and soldiers deployed to halt long-running violence in the area.

The following day, as dignitaries attended a mass burial for the victims, assailants attacked again, killing a federal senator and a state lawmaker.

The Nigerian Red Cross said late Sunday that aid workers had counted 58 bodies as they continued to search for more. An updated death toll was not immediately available Tuesday.
