Although they have not claimed responsibility, it is very likely that Boko Haram is responsible for a suicide bombing at a school in Nigeria which has claimed the lives of 48 children and injured at least 80 more.
Boko Haram came to international notoriety last spring when it kidnapped 276 girls from a Nigerian school and have married most of them off to jihadists.
Their violence has escalated since the Nigerian government announced it had reached a ceasefire with the group last month. But a week ago, a suicide bomber killed 29 Shiite Muslims observing Ashura and also broke nearly 150 of its members out of a state prison.
My guess is that Boko Haram is just getting warmed up and will do much destabilize Nigeria and bring misfortune to the government of President Goodluck Jonathan.
