In Nigeria, the group Bako Haram increased its terror campaign by bombing the United Nations headquarters in the capital, Abuja, on Aug. 26. Nineteen people were killed and more than 80 injured.

Including attacks on police headquarters and a beer garden, this makes three more major attacks in Abuja since New Year’s Eve when a fish market was bombed. In this same period, throughout the country there have been 70 attacks, mostly in the north. Bako Haram is affiliated with al-Qaida and is seeking an Islamic government with Sharia law in Nigeria.
