The Christian Post website reports today (July 16, 2012) that -- as attacks on Nigeria's Christians continued this past week -- a particularly grizzly attack saw 50 Christians burned to death at their pastor's home, where they had fled for refuge from a terrorist attack.
Over 100 people were killed by armed terrorists in Nigeria this past week. Nigeria has the largest population in all of Africa, with some 158 million people.
Islamic extremist group Boko Haram has once again taken responsibility for the attacks.
The Boko Haram last week said that all Christians in Nigeria need to convert to Islam, or "they would never know peace again."
