KANO  - A mispronunciation taken to be blasphemous in Nigeria's north sparked a riot by Muslim youths Thursday, leaving four people dead as well as a church and shops burnt, police and residents said. "What happened in (the town of) Bichi was misinformation," Kano state police chief Ibrahim Idris told reporters. "Rumours went round that someone blasphemed the Prophet and there was a breakdown of law and order." Residents reported four people dead along with the church and Christian-owned shops burnt. Soldiers and policemen deployed in the town.



The riot came on the same day that former British prime minister Tony Blair and the incoming spiritual head of the world's Anglicans Justin Welby launched an initiative in the Nigerian capital Abuja aimed at Muslim-Christian reconciliation. According to Idris, a Christian tailor mispronounced the name of a dress while chatting with his Muslim neighbour in Hausa, the major language spoken in the north, changing the meaning to 'the Prophet has come to the market'. Idris however denied anyone was killed, though residents spoke of the deaths. Bichi is located some 30 kilometres (18 miles) from Kano, the largest city in Nigeria's mainly Muslim north. "Four Igbos were killed in the attacks. One of them was thrown into a ditch near my house," one resident said, referring to a mainly Christian ethnic group. "Scores of shops owned by Christians and a church were burnt by a large mob of Muslim youth who set bonfires on the road and disrupted traffic."

its such a pity at this time of modern development & in the 21st century that the muslim world is still worse than a moron planet, i bet their founder mohamed never tought them tolerance & spiritual discipline, i'm sure he also never had any good spiritual backing! The only thing mohamad has done is his success is leading all muslims to damnation. It is very obvious even to some muslims that islam is not a religion but an evil cult always demanding for blood. Just take a look at the world today & see, any trouble or fight is caused by the islamic groups. Now i understand what my BIBLE tells me that the devil is in the world living among humans & his main porpose is to steal, kill & destroy. Which it best describes the muslims who steal, kill christians in the name of demon mohamed a.k.a jihad & destroy churches along christians valuables. The dead muslims sorry because you are damned already, bnt to the living muslims, you still have a chance to redeem yourself. Just repent from that cult Jesus is ever ready to take u back. Pls repent now while you still can.
